No charges in shooting of teen who attacked scout
TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) -- Prosecutors have declined to file charges against a Southern California man who shot and killed a 19-year-old who had attacked a Boy Scout as he packed his car for a retreat.
Torrance police Sgt. Robert Watt told the Daily Breeze (http://bit.ly/19PeBpW) Wednesday that police are still gathering evidence against 58-year-old Carmen Reyes Jr. and may again submit the case once the details of the killing become clearer.
Watt says 19-year-old Sergio Moises Wilms of Gardena walked silently up to the teenage boy Saturday and started beating him.
Watt says Wilms backed off once the Boy Scout's mother came screaming from their condominium, but remained aggressive toward him.
Watt says Reyes, who lives with the family, came out with a gun and eventually shot Wilms several times in the torso.
