Teens charged as adults in shooting that injured 3 outside of Hinkley high school

Three teens who were involved in a shooting outside of their high school are being charged as adults.

The three Hinkley High School students, Larry Renee Jefferson, Dalen Lenale Brewer and Diego Flores, all 16-years old have received their charges, which include four counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of first-degree assault, second degree-assault, and possession of a weapon on school grounds. In addition, Jefferson is facing a felony charge for using a prohibited large-capacity magazine during a crime.

As part of the charges, the trio also face two crime-of-violence sentence enhancers. Since their arrests, the three have been kept in jail. Their bond amounts, which the judge has refused to lower, are set at $250,000 for Jefferson and Brewer, and $200,000 for Flores.

Court dates have been scheduled for the three, with Jefferson and Brewer scheduled to appear on December 15 for status conference hearings, and the same for Flores on March 7.

On November 19, during lunch time, gunshots were fired in the high school’s parking lot. The school, which has since reversed its policy, allowed students to leave campus for lunch. When the shots broke out, three students who had been eating in the parking lot were shot. Each is expected to survive.
