MOSES LAKE, Wash. -- A judge delayed a hearing on Monday for a teenager accused of shooting and injuring his parents in the head. Lawyers for both sides agreed that they needed more time before Nathan Brooks’ next court hearing.
Nathan Brooks, 14, appeared in court briefly on Monday afternoon. The judge later decided to delay the hearing until April 8th.
Moses Lake police said that they are close to finishing their investigation as prosecutors review evidence. Investigators told KREM 2 News that they have not finished interviewing Brooks’ mother. She has been recovering from her injuries according to officers.
Court documents showed that the teenager faces two counts of attempted first degree murder.
The 14-year-old shot his parents because he was angry for being grounded according to police. Investigators said Brooks’ parents grounded him because he was tardy for school.
