MILWAUKEE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The 15-year-old boy accused of shooting eight people at Mayfair Mall was in court on Thursday, Dec. 3. This, as the mall announced new security measures to detect guns inside the mall using specially trained K-9s. 

The hearing Thursday was held over Zoom. Attorneys, the 15-year-old, and both of his parents attended. 

Prosecutors want to move the 15-year-old to adult court. Because of that, there will be a hearing on Feb. 16, where both sides will get to make their points about where he should end up. 

Before that hearing in February, there will be a separate hearing about what evidence the 15-year-old and his attorneys will have to access for the February hearing. 

The suspect's attorney said they want all of the police reports and information the state plans to use. The state says that's not necessary for the hearing that will decide if he ends up in adult or juvenile court. 

"Where the case is heard is what we’re deciding not whether the case is strong weak," said Gilbert Urfer, prosecutor. 

"We are bound to only what they will let us see and only what they will give us, I think that’s just absolutely wrong," said attorney Paul Rifelj, who is representing the suspect.
