TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A judge has determined that there is sufficient evidence for a 16-year-old boy to face trial on a murder charge in connection to the fatal shooting of a man in Tulsa.

The Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/1XzllNe ) reports that the teenager was bound over Wednesday.

Authorities say 18-year-old Tomas Rodriguez was found with a gunshot wound inside his car, which had crashed into a parked pickup last October. He later died at a hospital.

According to police, Rodriguez chased two juveniles in his car after an attempted robbery at his home. Police say Rodriguez was shot when he caught up with the two suspects.
