A 16-year-old boy accused of shooting and killing an off-duty paramedic in Oakland has been ordered to stand trial for the murder.
Christian Burton appeared in Oakland court Tuesday. He is one of six teens charged with killing Quinn Boyer, who was shot in the head in an attempted car jacking on April 2.
Boyer, 34, died two days later.
Oakland police said Burton and five other teenagers ranging in ages 13 to 16 wanted to steal Boyer's car.
Burton's attorney on Tuesday said his client is not the shooter.
"I think they relied heavily on the statements of two co-participants, one of whom might be the actual shooter in this case," said Ernie Castillo, defense attorney. "The way I look at it is they shook hands with the devil and pursued that."
Burton is scheduled to be arraigned on the murder charge on Nov. 13.
