CHICAGO (AP) - A 16-year-old boy has been charged as an adult in the fatal shootings of two other teenagers in Chicago’s Grand Crossing neighborhood.

The teen has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the killings of 16-year-old Donta Parker and 17-year-old Sakinah Reed on Jan. 5. He’s also charged with wounding another 16-year-old boy who was shot in the hand and ankle.

The three teens are among more than 125 people shot in Chicago since Jan. 1. The two killed were the victims of the year’s first double homicide.

The teen charged in the shooting is scheduled to appear in court for a bond hearing Wednesday.

His name hasn’t been released because he’s a minor.
