Teens charged after weekend shooting
THE teenage driver and passenger shot by police during a pursuit in Kings Cross on the weekend have been charged.
Police allege the stolen car they were travelling in mounted a footpath in Darlinghurst Rd, running over a pedestrian.
When the car continued to drive into the crowd, police opened fire.
The boys were given bedside hearings at St Vincent's Hospital on Thursday.
The 14-year-old, who remains in a serious condition, was charged with using a weapon to avoid apprehension, driving in a furious manner causing injury, taking and driving a conveyance and Skye's Law (police pursuit).
He was also charged with robbery in company in relation to a separate incident at a petrol station in September last year.
The 17-year-old passenger was charged with being carried in conveyance and will front the Bidura Children's Court on May 1.
The four other passengers are already before the courts.
A Critical Incident Investigation Team continues to investigate the shooting.
