OAKLAND (CBS/BCN) – A 16-year-old boy was charged with murder Thursday for the shooting death of off-duty paramedic Quinn Boyer in the Oakland hills earlier this month, prosecutors said.
Christian Burton, of Oakland, who was arrested at 8 a.m. Tuesday, was scheduled to be arraigned in Alameda County Superior Court in Oakland Thursday afternoon. He was being charged as an adult.
In addition to murder, Burton faces a special-circumstance allegation that he murdered Boyer during the course of a carjacking, which could make him eligible for the death penalty if convicted.
