DENVER (CBS4)– The Denver district attorney has formally charged a man in connection with the shooting death of a teenager last month.

Marquise Lewis, 20, has been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of 13-year-old Reysean Abram.

Two other juvenile co-defendants have also been charged in the case.

Keon Belton, 15, and Lonnie White, 17, have been charged as juveniles with first-degree murder.

White is likely to be charged as an adult later this week.

Belton, because of his age, will remain charged as a juvenile until a decision is made on a transfer hearing request.

The charges allege that on Aug. 30 at about 11:15 p.m. Lewis, Belton and White were involved in an altercation in the 4600 block of Eugene Way. The charges further allege that they fired shots from a moving vehicle a short time later.

Abram was shot and killed by those bullets in the 4700 block of Enid Way.

Lewis remains in custody in the Denver Detention Center where he is being held without bond.

He will be advised of the charge in Denver District Court on Sept. 13 at 8:30 a.m.

Belton and White remain in custody in a juvenile facility.
