WaPo: Teen Confessed to Shooting Bryant Morillo

One of the two teenagers arrested in the shooting death of 16-year-old Bryant Morillo confessed to the crime shortly after being arrested, the Washington Post reports.

The teens wanted to rob two others who were walking in the 4500 block of New Hampshire Avenue NW about 1:30 p.m., Clingerman said. When it was over, according to Clingerman, Bryant Morillo, 16, of Hyattsville was shot in the neck and buttocks. He died from his injuries. Another person who was with Morillo was also shot but survived.

The suspects took an iPod, some money and a gift bag stuffed with dirty clothes, according to Clingerman.

A witness later told police that the suspects admitted to “shooting some amigos,” Clingerman said. The victims were Latino.

The two suspects, now 17 years old, have not been named publicly.
