A second teen has been charged with killing an 18-year-old Chicago high school student outside the school earlier this month in the Far South Side Jeffery Manor neighborhood.
Jarone Carter, 16, has been
charged as an adult with first-degree murder, attempted armed robbery and
aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.
A 14-year-old boy has also been
charged with the murder but his name has not been released because he is being
tried as a juvenile.
Carter, of the 10100 block of South Paxton Avenue,
and the younger boy are accused of the Oct. 19 fatal shooting and attempted
robbery of Terrance Wright in the 9900 block of South Yates Avenue.
Carter is expected to appear in bond court on Wednesday and the
14-year-old will appear in Juvenile Court on Nov. 13.
According to a police report, the 14-year-old boy was identified as
the suspected gunman who shot Wright and caused his death.
14-year-old boy's mother directed police to the boy who was arrested Sunday
morning in his bedroom in the 9700 block of South Merrill Avenue.
Wright, a senior at Banner Academy South High School, was
leaving the school in the 2300 block of East 99th Street about 3:40 p.m. when he
was approached by five would-be robbers.
The victim fought
back when one assailant rifled through his pockets and was shot in the chest.
Wright, who lived in the 5000 block of South Carpenter
Street, was pronounced dead at 4:31 p.m. Oct. 19 at Advocate Christ Medical
Center in Oak Lawn
