An Auburn teen accused of shooting his grandmother’s ex-boyfriend in Tacoma was arraigned Wednesday in Pierce County Superior Court, where his bail was set at $1 million.
Justice Henderson, 17, faces charges of first-degree attempted murder and second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm.
He was arrested on a bench warrant Tuesday after being on the run for more than two months after the May 4 shooting.
Co-defendants Marchae Garrison, 17, and Melissa Thierry, 18, were arraigned May 10. Both face first-degree attempted murder charges, and Garrison is charged with second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm.

According to court documents, Henderson and Garrison shot the 63-year-old man, who was using a walker, after he recognized Henderson and opened the door of his home in the 1700 block of South 35th Street.
Thierry was their getaway driver, prosecutors allege.
Police said they found a gun and ammunition while searching a home where Henderson, Garrison and Thierry lived.
According to charging papers, Henderson told friends the victim assaulted his grandmother in the past “and he was going to do something about it.”
