Teenager to be tried as adult in fatal shooting
STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — A 15-year-old boy charged with murder in the shooting death of a former high school football captain will be tried as an adult.
The Stamford Advocate reports Sirus Dixon did not enter a plea during his arraignment in Stamford Superior Court on Wednesday.
Dixon is accused of shooting 18-year-old Antonio Robinson in the back in May under an Interstate 95 bridge in Stamford.
Robinson was a co-captain of the Stamford High School football team. He died weeks before his graduation.
Eighteen-year-old Jimmy Jean-Baptiste and 17-year-old Karl Davis also were arraigned Wednesday on accessory-to-murder charges.
Police previously have said the shooting was likely nothing more than a territorial dispute.
Each of the three teens is being held on $500,000 bond.
