A 15-year-old suspect charged in a shooting at the Ruggles MBTA Station in Boston last month has been held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing.

The teen, who was not identified due to his age, faces attempted murder and firearms charges in connection with the shooting on April 18, which left one person seriously hurt. He was arraigned on Wednesday and set to return for that dangerousness hearing on May 11.

District Attorney Kevin Hayden said several recent arraignments of teen suspects are "tragic but necessary" for public safety.

“We cannot have bullets flying at busy transit stations or people victimized by serial attacks.  We and other agencies make services available at every opportunity for kids and families who are struggling.  But public safety is essential, and in these cases our approach had to acknowledge the threats posed by these juveniles,” Hayden said.
