Here's the problem....if police have casings from each of the incidents...then they were fired by semi automatic handguns NOT revolvers.......all three handguns seized were revolvers (which keep spent casing inside the revolving chambers), so it means these guys are INNOCENT, unless the police can find 3 semi auto handguns in their possession

"The youths were booked into the juvenile hall at the Youth Services Center in San Mateo on charges of being in possession of a concealed firearm, carrying a loaded firearm in public and possession of ammunition by a minor, police said." That charge will probably be an open and shut case.
For the past shootings, it seems different weapons were used. Even if they can't find those weapons, depending on the quality of the video, it may be possible to convict.
Even if they don't convict on that matter - these youth appear to be on the wrong path. There's no reason why they can't turn their lives around.

spent casings can be expelled from a revolver. One opens the cylinder, pushes the cylinder rod and presto! spent casings. Since the police didn't identify what type of spent casings they have from the previous shootings you have no idea as to whether those arrested are innocent or not.
