Six teens now face murder and armed robbery charges in connection with the Nov. stabbing death of 18-year-old Olijawon Griffin at the Woodley Park Metro station.

Muquan Cawthorne, 16, of Mount Rainier; Isaiah Gant, 16, of Hyattsville; Gary Maye, 17, of Hyattsville; Deon Jefferson, 17, of Landover, and Immanuel Swann, 17, of Brentwood are all charged as adults in the case, police say.

Seventeen-year-old Chavez Myers was previously charged with first degree premeditated murder while armed.

The indictment alleges Myers stabbed Griffin after the group robbed him of his brand new, $400 jacket in Adams Morgan.

All six have been in custody since their arrests.
