Police: Botched pot deal led to shooting at DC McDonald's

WASHINGTON (AP) - Court documents show a botched marijuana deal led to a shooting inside a McDonald's bathroom at the Verizon Center arena in downtown Washington.

The Washington Post reports that the 25-year-old man who was wounded on Aug. 12 was preparing to sell pot to his attackers.

A 15-year-old boy is accused of being the gunman.

On Tuesday, police arrested a 17-year-old boy and 20-year-old Lafayette Booker of northeast Washington.

Police say in court documents that Booker and the teens agreed to pay $40 for marijuana. But the 15-year-old didn't have any money and said he would rob the dealer.

He confronted the victim in the bathroom as the man was weighing the pot on a set of scales. The man was shot in the left side of the head.
