A 14 year old Omaha boy will be charged as an adult in the deadly shooting of a 17 year old Sunday afternoon at 25th and Crown Point Avenue.
Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine says, “Tyon Wells, 14 years of age, he is being charged as an adult with 2nd degree murder, use of a firearm and 2nd degree assault and use of a firearm.”
Kleine says Wells and another teen, 15 year old met with the two victims in what he describes as a drug deal involving marijuana gone bad. The accusation is that Wells pulled a firearm and fired three shots into a vehicle hitting two teens inside.
17 year old Zachary Parker was rushed to a hospital where he later died. 17 year old Devon Darnell was treated and released from a hospital.
The 15 year old with Wells will be charged with conspiracy to distribute marijuana and will face those charges in juvenile court. Kleine says he had no connection to the homicide.
