“Witnesses stated that a gray Toyota Camry drove past the houses on Roosevelt Street and the occupants in the car started shooting,” said Bingham . “As the Toyota Camry was leaving the scene they crashed into a mailbox and all the occupants got out and fled the scene.”
The investigation resulted in two juveniles (age 14 and age 16) being picked up and questioned and later charged with one count of murder and one count of aggravated assault each.
