The high school graduate had accepted a full scholarship to Johns Hopkins University, according to the source. Now, the teen is in custody at a youth facility in Berks County, Pa. He could have his case moved to adult court when he turns 18 next month.

A law-enforcement source confirmed the details to The Associated Press. Both sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they aren't authorized to speak publicly about the case.

The Philadelphia Inquirer first reported on the teen's arrest in Friday editions.
