A 16 year old Yakima boy accused of gunning down a rival gang member makes his first court appearance in Yakima County Court this afternoon.

Daniel Perez is now facing charges of murder as an adult after a judge handed down the decision last week.

Perez is suspected of shooting and killing 26 year old Octavio Rangel last October at the Yakima Transit Center -- he was 15 at the time.

Perez will be arraigned in two weeks.
