Plea Bargain: Teen Charged in Perk Park Shooting Case

Posted by Web staff - email

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - One of the teen's charged in Cleveland's deadly park shooting strikes a plea bargain.

17-year old Bryan Elliott pleaded guilty today to a robbery charge.  Police say he drove the gunman to the scene in downtown Cleveland.

The shootings at Perk Park at E. 12th Street and Chester Avenue, happened in February.

As part of the deal, prosecutors would drop some charges.  Also, Elliot would not be transferred to an adult court and would have to testify against the others in the case.

Elliot would be sentenced in July, but he will be locked up until the other case is closed.

The suspected gunman is 17 Raffeal King.

King is accused of pulling the trigger that killed Jeremy Pechanec and severely wounded Jory Aebly.

Three adult suspects, Perry King, Reginald Day and Cornelius King are also charged and face the death penalty if convicted.
