Pierce County prosecutors have charged a 17-year-old boy with murder in connection with the shooting death of another teen last weekend in a South Tacoma alley.

Datrion I. Newton pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree murder, first-degree assault and unlawful possession of a firearm during his arraignment this afternoon in Pierce County Superior Court.

Newton’s been accused in the death of Donald M. McCaney, 17. McCaney was shot Sunday night during a fist fight in the 4500 block of an alley between South Union Avenue and South Puget Sound Avenue.

During Newton’s arraignment today, Pierce County Court Commissioner Patrick Oishi increased the teen’s bail to $1 million.

Newton was represented by the Department of Assigned Counsel.

    What do 95 percent of Tribune crime articles have in common? Guess correctly and you’re in big trouble.

    To Donald’s family you remain in my heart and prayers. May God heal you and get you thru this hard time.

  3. Sunday night? Whatever happened to the family sitting down to the watch The Wonderful of Disney? Remember Charlie the Lonesome Cougar? Tinkerbell tapping out the lights?

    Wimps take a gun to a fist fight.Who is the registered owner of the gun?Probably a burglary victim.

  5. Another 17 year old ‘boy’. Gee, TNT you would think someone in your editing department would try another, more accurate adjective by now. ‘Boys’ are age 12 and under! Although by his actions this ‘male’ has proven he is NOT a man, but instead a spoiled, impulsive out of control punk, he’s definitely NOT a ‘boy’. If you think so, just walk up to him and call him a ‘boy’ to his face.
