A teen arrested in a Christmas Eve murder in Pawtucket will be charged as an adult.

17-year-old Pedro Lopez was waived out of family court on Monday. Lopez was arrested on April 4 and charged with murder and conspiracy for his suspected role in the shooting death of 21-year-old Ryan Almeida. Last month, a second suspect, 20-year-old Daquan Watts was arrested in Maine.

Almeida was shot in the early morning of Dec. 24 outside of his mother’s housing complex.
