Hernandez is facing four counts of attempted first-degree murder, one count of first-degree assault, one count of second-degree assault, one count of possession of a weapon on school grounds and two crime-of-violence sentence enhancers.

Three students were injured in the shooting that happened in the parking lot of the Aurora school on Nov. 19 after a fight broke out.

Three other suspects, all 16-year-old boys, will be charged as adults for their alleged roles in the shooting. Diego Flores, Dalen Brewer and Larry Jefferson appeared before a judge at the Arapahoe County Justice Center last week.

According to an arrest affidavit, one of the victims believes she was not the intended target of the gunfire. A second victim ducked in the back seat of a car before getting shot in the abdomen.

Police have surveillance video from school and a nearby business. It includes images that show guns pointed out the window of a pickup truck in the parking lot.
