Larry Jefferson, Dalen Brewer and Diego Flores all 16 were previously charged in the case and each face a number of counts.

Three teenagers were injured in the Nov. 19 shooting that started as a fight in the parking lot during lunch and led to several people firing shots out of the windows of a pickup truck as they drove through the parking lot, according to Aurora Police (APD)

The school's security cameras captured what led up to the shooting. The video was detailed in an affidavit released by the district attorney's office on Tuesday.

Just before noon, the video shows a white truck pulling into the parking lot of the school and stopping near a darker-colored sedan, according to the affidavit. The driver of that truck was later identified as Flores.

Several people got out of both vehicles, and the affidavit says the group walked into the parking lot of the school to have an argument with several others who were already in the parking lot.

A couple of minutes later, the affidavit says a 17-year-old identified as Hernandez got out of the truck, pulled out a handgun and began firing at three other teens "seemingly without provocation."

The video appears to show Hernandez run from the area, the affidavit says.
