Three juveniles arrested in a shooting in downtown Cheney early Sunday will be charged as adults.
Trevien M. Mims, 17; Damon M. Morris, 17; and Clovy Jaramillo, 16, appeared in Spokane County Superior Court Thursday on charges of drive-by shooting, first-degree assault and riot.
The boys, along with 19-year-old Abran L. Gibson, are accused of a shooting that injured an Eastern Washington University student, Sharanbir S. Grewal, in the hand.
The Spokesman-Review identifies juvenile criminal suspects only if they are charged as adults with serious felonies.
The shooting occurred about 1:18 a.m. following a confrontation in front of the El Rodeo restaurant on Second Street, according to court documents. The suspects are accused of exiting a Jeep Wrangler and arguing with the victim and his friends before Morris revealed the butt of handgun in his waistband, according to court documents.
A public defender described Jaramillo as “the least involved,” and Judge Ellen Kalama Clark set his bond at $20,000.
Mims’s bond was set at $25,000; Morris’s was set at $30,000 after Clark noted he was also charged with possession of a controlled substance for OxyContin allegedly found after his arrest and had a previous drug charge as a juvenile.
Family members for each of the boys described them as good kids and assured the judge they would show up for court. The boys will be held in Spokane County Juvenile Detetion Center unless bond is posted.
