A 15-year-old accused of shooting and killing a homeless man for fun will stay locked up.

Timothy Chavez and 17-year-old Anthony Gallegos are accused of shooting Ronnie Ross 12 times in the back near the Crowne Plaza Hotel last month.

The two then allegedly bragged about it at a party.

Wednesday Chavez was in adult court after prosecutors asked that he remain locked up because he is a danger.

Judge Briana Zamora agreed that he be held until trial.
