CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The three suspects charged in connection to a fatal drive-by that killed two people appeared in court Friday morning for arraignment.
Charles Walker, Kassius Williams, and Terrell Gray were indicted on charges of aggravated murder, felonious assault, carrying concealed weapons, and improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle after being accused of the March 25 drive-by shooting. During the arraignment hearing, all three suspects entered a not guilty plea with a $2 million bond. Their next court appearance is scheduled for April 19.
Police say the shooting took place near East 89th Street and Woodland Avenue. People in two separate vehicles began shooting at each other while driving down Woodland Avenue. According to police, 61-year-old David Wilder, an innocent bystander that taught art and history at several local colleges, was caught in the crossfire and suffered a fatal gunshot wound while standing on the side of the road. The other victim, 15-year-old Tywan Cortez Johnson, was shot while inside of a vehicle that was involved.
