Almost 3 months after a 13-year-old boy allegedly shot an 18-year-old woman in the vicinity of Plyers Mill Road and Douglas Avenue in Wheaton, the Montgomery County State's Attorney's office has charged the youth as an adult in the crime.
Issac Quinteros of Wheaton, now 14, is charged with 22 crimes in total. According to Kevin Lewis, Montgomery County reporter for ABC 7 News, Quinteros was expelled from A. Mario Loiederman Middle School last year. Police say he and adult accomplice Eber Umanzor are both members of the Little R gang, which has made a name for itself for numerous brazen crimes in the county.
A judge had to determine whether the case justified charging Quinteros as an adult.
