Teenager charged with first degree murder in Ramon Bradley case

A 16-year-old teenager has been charged in connection to the murder of Ramon Bradley.

D'Andre Hill, 16, has been charged with first degree murder, criminal discharge of a firearm and criminal use of weapons.

He was charged today by Wyandotte County District Attorney Jerome Gorman. Hill was charged in the juvenile department; Gorman has also filed a request for Hill to be tried as an adult in the case.

Bradley, who was a student at F.L. Schlagle High School, was killed last weekend in a shooting near 10th and Washington Boulevard.

More from Gorman's office: 
Wyandotte County District Attorney Jerome A. Gorman this afternoon charged D’Andre P. Hill, Black Male, Kansas City, Kansas, DOB: 06-14- 96, in the juvenile department of the district court with First Degree Murder, Criminal Discharge of a Firearm at an Occupied Vehicle, and Criminal Use of Weapons, in connection with the October 21, 2012, shooting death of seventeen year old Ramon Bradley, which occurred between the intersections of 10th and Washington Blvd. and Fairfax and Quindaro Blvd. in Kansas City, Kansas.

A detention hearing was held this afternoon and Senior District Judge Thomas L. Boeding ordered Hill detained. A status conference in the case is scheduled for November 26, 2012. The district attorney’s office has filed a motion to have Hill certified to stand trial as an adult. A hearing on that motion will be scheduled at a later date.

Hill is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
