Teen to be charged as an adult in slaying

14-year-old to be charged as adult in slaying

Court records confirm that a 14-year-old accused of fatally shooting a man on July 10 has been indicted on a charge of first-degree murder. Authorities say Harleme Larry, known as Harley, approached Agustin Hernandez and three other men on Oak Street about 1:41 a.m. He robbed them at gunpoint, then shot Hernandez, 31, authorities said. Larry later bragged to friends that he'd robbed and killed someone over $4, authorities said. A grand jury last week issued the indictment, which was sealed until Larry was transferred to adult custody. Prosecutors have said Larry will be charged as an adult.

George Brazier, candidate for Pasco School Board in District 5, says he has decided to support Amendment 8 to modify Florida's class size amendment after doing additional research on the topic. A story in Sunday's Pasco Times was based on an earlier interview in which Brazier backed the original terms of the 2002 amendment.
