The D.C. area has begun to enforce a juvenile curfew after a judge denied bond for a 16-year-old girl accused of fatally stabbing another teen. The deadly attack occurred on August 27 at approximately 2:10 a.m.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Thursday that the juvenile pilot program would target seven focus areas selected by the Metropolitan Police Department that cover neighborhoods “that have experienced a substantial increase in the number of young people involved in criminal conduct such as robberies or carjackings.” 

Yet, hours after the pilot program took effect Friday, two teens were killed, and a third remained hospitalized in critical condition due to a shooting that occurred.

The curfew prohibits minors under 17 from being in any public place or on the premises of any establishment Sunday through Thursday from 11:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 12:01 a.m. to 6:00 a.m.
