The teen, identified on September 25, 2013 as Leonard Moreno, will be tried as an adult for the random shooting of Jorge Vargas, 27. Vargas was an eight-year employee of the sheriff’s Custody Support Bureau. Moreno’s mother and a friend were also arrested, accused of trying to dispose of evidence and helping Moreno elude police.
