Last week, an Ohio court decided to trial two teenagers as adults for attempted murder. Amin Walker and Jaylen Miller, both from Collinwood, have been charged with wanting to gun down a Cleveland priest during a heist gone wrong. Three more teens will be charged in the case, prosecutors declared.
Cleveland Priest Was Mugged While Returning from the Church’s Chicken Coop
According to the court document, on the 12th of December, in the early hours of the morning, Reverent John Kumse, a St. Mary’s of the Assumption priest, left the church and went behind the back to retrieve a couple of eggs from the chicken coup.
Jaylen Miller and Amin Walker, both 16, snuck around the back as well and were hiding in the foliage, waiting for the priest to return. After collecting four eggs, the Cleveland priest returned to the church only to be cut off by Walker and Miller who demanded the eggs and anything of value he had.
Kumse told before the court that the teenagers were armed with pistols. Seeing that the two menacing teens, the Cleveland priest started running towards the church. That’s when Miller and Walker opened fire.
According to the investigators, the duo fired three shots towards the fleeing priest, but only two hit him. Realizing that the third bullet missed him, Kumse got up, fled from the courtyard and asked for help.
The two ran away and got into the getaway car driven by Kenitra Robinson, 18. Miller and Walker were taken into custody later that day after finding the van abandoned on a nearby street.
Fortunately, the Cleveland priest was rushed in time to the hospital, where the doctors managed to save him. The teenagers will answer before the law as adults. As far as their accomplices are concerned, the authorities are going to press more charges.
