A teen in Connecticut faces a murder charge in connection to the shooting death of another man, police said.
On June 20, police from Danbury, Connecticut, responded to multiple reports of gunshots from an intersection. When police arrived, they found Yhameek Johnson, 18, shot in the back.
Investigators determined Johnson was shot in a drive-by shooting, according to Danbury police. Officers provided aid until EMS arrived and took Johnson to the hospital, where he died. The police then started a homicide investigation.
Last week, police announced the arrest of 17-year-old Elvis Anthony Agramonte in connection to the murder.
Police did not detail how Agramonte knew the victim or the alleged motive. Danbury police said more arrests are expected.
Agramonte was charged with murder, criminal attempt to commit first-degree assault, risk of injury to a minor, carrying a pistol without a permit, weapons in a vehicle, first-degree reckless engagement and illegal possession of a license plate.
He is being held without bond.
Johnson was a recent graduate of CT Junior Republic, according to an online obituary. He enjoyed playing football and basketball. Johnson also made things by hand, especially for his grandmother to put in her yard.
“Yhameek had a smile that would light up a room. His dimples were everything,” the obituary read. “He loved him some fried chicken and fried shrimp…Yhameek LOVED HIS FAMILY AND ANYONE WHO LOVED HIM.”
