One of the two teens charged in the Collett Street shooting on Mother's Day appeared in court Wednesday for a hearing.
15-year-old Rakeem Jones appeared before Judge Glenn Derryberry, where prosecutors showed surveillance footage from a home from near where the incident happened. The Lima Police Department says the incident happened on May 14th on the 300 block of North Collett Street and it started as a verbal argument between two groups of young black males. It then escalated into both groups firing multiple shoots at each other. No one was injured during the incident but shots did hit a few cars and homes nearby.
The video not only showed Jones fired the gun across the street at a home, but helped someone else do the same thing. Jones is facing two counts of delinquency by reason of felonious assault with a gun specification, one count of discharging a firearm on or near prohibited premises with a gun specification and a charge of carrying or concealing a weapon. Judge Derryberry will review the evidence and set a hearing to see if Jones will be charged as an adult for the charges before him.
