Prosecutors: During Mass Shooting, Teen Did the Driving

Prosecutors believe 14-year-old Malik Carter was the wheel-man for the hit squad that allegedly killed four people and wounded five on Tuesday night by unloading bullets into a crowd in Washington Highlands. If that's so, the teen led MPD on a dramatic chase. Court records say that, following the shooting, the silver Town and Country minivan Carter was driving came across a police cruiser, which turned around to follow. Perhaps panicking, Carter gunned it.

Cops pursued the minivan, which was traveling at a "high rate of speed" north on South Capitol Street SE. The vehicle sped onto I-295. At Howard Road SE and 295, the occupants of the minivan allegedly decided to get rid of some incriminating evidence. Cops say it was there the suspects pitched an AK-47 out the window. Believed inside the vehicle were Malik Carter, Nathaniel Simms, Orlando Carter and a fourth suspect police have yet to find. The four allegedly ditched the minivan in the 700 block of Yuma Street SE, taking off on foot.

After foot pursuits, three of the suspects were caught, including Malik Carter, whom cops saw run into Ferebee Hope Elementary School. He was found in one of the school's hallways.  The teen has been detained; Carter and Simms face multiple murder charges.

    Well it is sad, but true to say that my people(african american) got alot of work to do, as far as tryna learn to live better lives as a community. I can say this, sometimes parents can whip their kids to death, or punish them every other day, and even take their things, but at some point, kids often will learn in their preadolescent stage, that they can make choices, whether good or bad. Like, "ok, i am gonna get my but beat for this, but so what! I am going with my friends to the park, or party, or to steal, or rob, just for the heck of it! I first hand has watched kids grow up to be so disiplined, and mannered in the home, only to come outside their front doors, and try to hang tough, prove points, and throw away their lives forever, when their parents are left scratching their heads like, " i disiplined from an early age, so how could he do this at only 14? Well, because he found out that he could make decisions, whether good or bad, without thinking about consequences or reprocusions of the choices he or she makes!!! that is why! bottom line!
