(Salt Lake City-AP) -- A 16-year-old boy accused of attempted murder for last month's shooting at a popular Murray amusement center will stand trial as an adult.
After a preliminary hearing that lasted more than three hours yesterday, Juvenile Court Judge Robert Yeates bound over David Van on four second-degree felony counts of attempted murder in the March 29th shooting at the Utah Fun Dome.
Four people were injured, including a four-year-old boy who was shot in the groin area. All are recovering.
Van also was bound over on four third-degree felony counts of discharging a firearm from a vehicle near a highway or in the direction of a person, building or vehicle, and one count of obstruction of justice. If convicted, he could face a sentence of up to 15 years in prison.
