A teenager suspected in the NoMa-area shooting incident that injured more than a dozen people was ordered held without bond Saturday.

Craig Steven Wilson, 19, of Southeast D.C. is charged with assault with intent to kill, officials said. He turned himself into police on Friday.

Wilson appeared in D.C. Superior Court on Saturday wearing a white-hooded sweatshirt, blue pants and blue sneakers. His preliminary hearing was scheduled for April 4.

The shooting occurred on March 11 outside Tyler House, a low-income apartment complex in the 1200 block of North Capitol Street. Thirteen people were shot, including one who was admitted to an intensive care unit at a hospital.

Video footage of the incident shows two vehicles driving down North Capitol Street while people run and fall to the ground. One of the vehicles, a Mercedes CLK, was registered to Wilson, according to a charging document.

Wilson was under GPS monitoring by court services, and a monitoring bracelet showed that for a period of time before the shooting, he was in the unit block of Patterson Street NE -- a block where a nightclub is located near the scene of the shooting, according to a court document.

The GPS data show that in the hour before the shooting, Wilson was in a vehicle circling the area where it took place. It also places Wilson at the scene of the shooting when it happened, court papers state.

On Thursday, police located the Mercedes CLK at the home of Wilson's grandmother, charging documents state. The other vehicle seen on the video was recovered in Southeast D.C. completely destroyed after being lit on fire. That vehicle's owner told police that the car had gone missing after a close friend of Wilson had used it.

Authorities have determined that four handguns were used during the incident. It appears that only two of the weapons were fired from vehicles traveling southbound on North Capitol Street, according to a charging document.

Another teen, 19-year-old Andrew Davon Allen is considered a person of interest in the incident, police officials said.
