Sicopata, spanish for psycho, is the nickname Josue Pena, 26, went by in the DC Columbia Heights neighborhood where 9-year-old Oscar Fuentes died last Saturday evening.
Pena, shown here at his arraignment in courtroom C-10 of DC Superior Court yesterday, is accused of firing through a door the shot that killed the young boy.
Relatives of the boy had ducked into the apartment where Oscar lived with his mother and grandmother as Pena persued them in a robbery attempt. Oscar was tying to look through the peephole when the bullet pierced the locked door.
