BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) — A man accused of opening fire on a family outside a suburban Denver dental office, killing a 13-year-old boy and wounding his mother and brother, will remain in jail.

A judge denied bond for 23-year-old Jeremy Webster Monday at his first court hearing since being arrested in Thursday’s shooting, which police called an act of road rage.

He hasn’t been charged yet.

A 13-year-old boy was killed. His mother and brother were taken to the hospital in critical condition. An unrelated bystander who was also wounded was less seriously injured.

Police say a 12-year-old boy from the family, who escaped harm, said Webster followed their car into the parking lot and argued briefly with his mother before opening fire.

According to court documents, Webster told police he had mental health issues.
