Three suspects in New York are in custody in connection to the death of a teenage boy last winter, authorities announced.
Following an investigation that stretched out over several months, police in Troy arrested William Webb, 28, Kalil Clay, 19, and Ramel Gulley, 27, and charged them each with one count of second-degree murder in connection to the shooting death of Anthony Christopher, 16, WTEN reported.
On Jan. 5, Christopher and another 16-year-old were gunned down. Christopher, a student at Troy High School, later died from his wounds. The second teenage victim was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
According to police, detectives executed search warrants related to the case 160 miles to the south in New York City and gathered evidence.
Law enforcement took Webb into custody in Brooklyn, while Clay was arrested in Manhattan, and Gulley was already behind bars on unrelated charges, WTEN reported.
Clay and Webb were both booked into the Rensselaer County jail, while Gulley was remanded back to Albany County Jail.
“This investigation was difficult and multifaceted, and I am thankful for the hard work and commitment of the Troy PD detectives and assisting agencies,” Troy Police Chief Daniel DeWolf said, noting the investigation resulted in getting a large amount of weapons and drugs off the streets.
