A 16-year-old central Pennsylvania girl has been charged as an adult in the shooting death of a man outside her apartment. Sasha Hernandez is charged with criminal homicide in the death of 20-year-old Steven Santiago. Police say Santiago was among a group of people involved in a dispute outside Hernandez's home in Lebanon on July 31.

Authorities have not commented on a motive for the shooting or where Hernandez got the gun.

Hernandez waived her preliminary hearing on Tuesday, meaning the case will move forward.

She is being held without bail in the Lebanon County Correctional Facility. It was not immediately clear if she has a lawyer.
