Stockton police said a 16-year-old boy was on a weekend pass from juvenile hall when he shot and killed a man Sunday.
The teen, who is in juvenile hall for an unrelated case, was charged with homicide and robbery, police said in a Facebook post Tuesday. His name was not released. The teen is accused of killing 30-year-old James Gorman.
Police said the 16-year-old and a 17-year-old male accomplice had robbed Gorman's sons earlier Sunday. The 17-year-old was booked into juvenile hall on robbery charges.
San Joaquin County Chief Probation Officer Stephanie James said the boy was in a program called Camp Peterson. James explained a judge usually sentences a juvenile to the 1-year program, which has four stages:
2) Intensive Treatment
3) On-going treatment, where the juvenile can begin to earn 8- to 12-hour passes
