DENVER-- The man accused of shooting two teens in a backyard marijuana grow, killing one of the teens, was formally advised of the charges against him Monday.

Keith Hammock, 48, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, four counts of attempted murder, one count of manufacturing marijuana and one count of marijuana cultivation.

Hammock is still being held without bond.

Hammock allegedly shot and killed a 15-year-old, and wounded a 14-year-old, around 2 a.m. Oct. 9 at a home in the 2800 block of High Street.

The probable cause statement, obtained by Denver7, said the backyard in which the teens were found backed up to the yard at 2830 High St., where officers found several “mature” marijuana plants.

The Denver District Attorney’s Office said Hammock has also been implicated in the September 2015 shooting of a 17-year-old that happened “under similar circumstances.”
