MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A 16-year-old Martinsburg boy who was captured last week in connection with the accidental shooting of his girlfriend is at large again after he escaped from a local juvenile detention center Sunday, police said.
The boy escaped from the Eastern Regional Juvenile Detention Center on South Queen Street with a 17-year-old boy, according to Martinsburg Police.
The 17-year-old boy, who was later captured in the area of Old Arden Road off Winchester Avenue, told police that he and the other youth escaped from the detention center by climbing over a fence in an outdoor recreation center, according to Lt. Rick Swartwood.
