The prosecutor says the teenager is a danger to himself and the community.
A message seeking comment was left for the boy’s attorney.
The teen initially was held on a felonious assault charge. Prosecutor Kevin Talebi (tuh-LEE’-bee) has said the boy will face additional charges. Talebi says he will seek to have the case moved to adult court
