Teen charged in shooting death of 12-year-old


A 12-year-old girl was shot and killed while on the front porch of her family’s home.

The suspect — an 18-year-old man.

Around 9 – Newark police and fire responded to this home… Where they found 12-year-old Isabella Barnes shot and killed on her front porch.

Police later identified this teen – 18-year-old Kegan Mummey as her shooter.

He was seen leaving the scene on a bicycle… And later picked up on the same bicycle on state route 79 between Heath and Hebron… But police believe he got rid of the gun before he was found.

Mummey is facing aggravated murder charges.

Police say Mummey got rid of the gun after the shooting so they’re asking people in the neighborhood to be on the lookout for any weapon they see unattended.
