Washington Teen Who Shot Parents Over Video Games May Be Tried as an Adult

Back in March we told you about Moses Lake, Washington teen Nathon Brooks, the 14-year-old charged with attempted murder for shooting his parents with a .22 caliber pistol while they were sleeping because they took away his video games (see this story for more details). Today the Columbia Basin Herald is reporting that Grant County prosecutors and the teen's defense attorney have asked the court for more time to determine if the 14-year-old can legally be tried as an adult.

Both sides need the additional time to consult with experts on the case. The next hearing will be on June 3. Meanwhile, Brooks is being held at a local juvenile detention center. The court has allowed the parents to visit their son, but they are not allowed to discuss the case and must be under supervision during visitation.
