16-year-old indicted in Toronto shooting

Crimes and Courts

A Toronto teen has been indicted on charges of murder, aggravated robbery, and tampering with evidence.

Jacob Gill, 16, is charged in connection with the fatal shooting of Dylan Monroe, 18, in August.

Police reported Monroe was riding in a vehicle around North Seventh Street in Toronto when he was shot twice during a drug deal gone bad.

The Jefferson County Grand Jury indicted Gill on Wednesday.

According to our news partner the Herald Star, two other suspects, in this case, have been indicted.

Ka’Saun Carlock, 15, of Steubenville was indicted on one count of murder with a firearm specification, one count of aggravated robbery with a firearm specification and one count of tampering with evidence.

Logan J. Cain, 20, of Toronto was previously indicted on charges of murder and aggravated robbery, each with a firearm specification, and tampering with evidence.

Juvenile Judge Joseph Corabi, in his bind-over ruling, said Gill knew Monroe and set up the deal to buy marijuana from Monroe.

The judge said testimony showed Carlock fired the shots. Corabi said Gill didn’t have a gun on him but knew a gun would be used in the planned robbery.

Toronto Police reported they were never able to recover the gun used.
