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.
