A 16-year-old accused of shooting and killing a Daniel Jenkins Academy student is on trial for murder this week.

Investigators say Derrell Green, who was just 14 at the time, killed 17-year-old Larry Maybank.

It happened in February of last year. Police say they found Maybank on Bonds Avenue near the Murray Hill neighborhood in North Charleston with several gunshot wounds.

Officers say the shooting probably stemmed from an earlier fight. Green is being tried as an adult.
