Police: Teen Hurt in Leap From 4th-Floor Boston Courthouse Balcony

Police say the teen had been facing domestic assault charges in juvenile court, but was not in custody

Massachusetts State Police are investigating after a teenager suffered severe injuries in an apparent leap from the fourth-floor interior balcony at a Boston courthouse.

A state police spokesman in an email says the teenager jumped from a balcony facing an inner atrium down to the first floor at the Edward W. Brooke courthouse just before 11 a.m. Monday. He was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital where he remains in stable condition.

The teen was facing domestic assault charges in juvenile court, but was not in custody. He had been released after his arrest and came to court on his own accord.

No additional information was released.
