DAILYKENN.com -- A 17-year-old white boy was fatally shot in Toledo, Ohio.
Two black males — brothers — have been arrested in connection with the crime. Neither is suspected of pulling the trigger that ended the life of Collin Doyle.
The actual gunman is yet to be apprehended, according to police.
Robbery was the apparent motive in the teen's murder.
Charged with complicity to both murder and aggravated robbery are Travis Durden, 32, and Tyreese Davis, 17. Why the brothers have different surnames was not disclosed.
The crime was reported February 27, 2017.
A 17-year-old Maumee High School student was fatally shot and another teenager injured during a shooting into their vehicle in West Toledo. Collin Doyle was treated at the scene Wednesday night and transported to ProMedica Toledo Hospital, where he died several hours later, Toledo police said. A second victim, Armand Batey,16, also was transported to the hospital and is expected to survive, according to police.
There were two other people in the same vehicle, but Toledo police Lt. Joe Heffernan said he could not comment as to whether they were juveniles. The teenagers who were shot were in the back of the vehicle. Police were dispatched to a report of shots fired about 8:14 p.m. in the area of Hillcrest Avenue and Willys Parkway. Both teens were found at Hazelhurst and Sylvania avenues, but the crime scene was located at Hazelhurst and Hillcrest avenues, according to a police report.
Lieutenant Heffernan said the car that included both shooting victims and the two others appeared to meet a vehicle with two unidentified males, and one of them started firing into the victims’ car. One of the males fired at least two rounds into the back of the vehicle that the Doyle youth was riding in, Lieutenant Heffernan said. One round went through the trunk, striking the Doyle youth, while the other struck the 16-year-old, Lieutenant Heffernan said.
