Two suspects in a fatal shooting at a bus stop in San Francisco's Hunters Point neighborhood on Monday are scheduled to be arraigned today.

Derrick Hunter, 20, and a 14-year-old boy whose name has not yet been released, are scheduled to appear in court at the Hall of Justice this afternoon, district attorney's office spokesman Alex Bastian said.

Hunter and the teen have been charged with murder, attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, dissuading a witness and other felonies stemming from the slaying of 19-year-old Jaquan Rice and the wounding of a 17-year-old girl at West Point and Middle Point roads at about 1 p.m. Monday, Bastian said.

The 14-year-old is being charged as an adult, Bastian said. The 17-year-old girl who was injured in the shooting was Rice's girlfriend, according to his mother, Shakeyta Levy, who wrote a series of distraught posts on Facebook following her son's death.

Rice, who died at a hospital after the shooting, was also the victim of a pit bull attack as an 11-year-old in Concord in March 2005. The attack spurred Contra Costa County supervisors to pass legislation prohibiting felons from owning dangerous animals.
