Thugs are getting younger and younger by the day.
A 12-year-old boy wanted for the murder of a 31-year-old drug dealer has been arrested, after more than a week on the run.
Pre-teen fugitive Jarrell Milton was arrested Tuesday night in Minneapolis, Minnesota – nearly 400 miles from the Omaha, Nebraska park where suspected drug dealer Jamymell Ray was gunned down in broad daylight on June 29.
Prosecutors said Wednesday that they plan to charge Jarrell and two teen accomplices with first-degree murder as adults.
‘All three suspects had guns. There were shell casings from two different types of guns at the scene,’ Douglas County District Attorney Don Kleine said, adding that the victim was shot at close range.
Authorities have not yet revealed how the 12-year-old got to Minnesota, or whether anyone will face charges for helping the boy get there.
However, it has been revealed that the boy’s father, Javaris Milton, has lived in the state.
WOWT reports that Jarrell’s mother Iyanna Moss was convicted for felony assault when he was a toddler. When she went to prison, Jarrell and his six other siblings were sent to live in an Omaha foster home, while their father was living in Minnesota. It’s unclear if Milton is still currently living in the state.
