WA teen charged with murder in party shooting

SEATTLE (AP) -- King County prosecutors have charged a 16-year-old boy with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of another teen at a weekend birthday barbecue in Auburn, Wash.

James Anthony Mills was charged Wednesday as an adult. He's held on $1 million bail with arraignment set for June 6. It was not known late Wednesday whether he had a lawyer.

Auburn police say Mills was arrested Monday night when he showed up at his mother's home disguised as a girl -- in a wig, dress and high-heel shoes.

He's accused of killing 16-year-old Adrian Wilson during Sunday's party in the courtyard of an apartment complex. The two teens reportedly were involved in a dispute.

Wilson's father, Gabriel Wilson, has been charged with assault and unlawful possession of a firearm. He's accused of firing shots on Sunday.

Two other men were wounded by gunfire. The Seattle Times says police have not said who shot them.
