Four Admit Roles in Fatal NJ Block Party Shooting
Four people that prosecutors say are members of the Sex Money Murder Bloods gang have pleaded guilty in a gang-related shooting that left a 13-year-old girl dead at a stop-the-violence block party in New Jersey's capital city.
The Trenton Times reports that 22-year-old James James, 24-year-old Robert Humphrey, 29-year-old Michael Jennings, and 34-year-old Rashead Miller, entered their guilty pleas Thursday in Trenton in the death of Tamrah Leonard. The 13-year-old Leonard was gunned down in June 2009 during a drive-by shooting. Authorities say the bullets missed the intended targets -- some rival gang members -- and struck and killed Leonard instead. Keith Warren of Trenton previously pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter in Leonard's death, and agreed to testify against others at trial.
