CLEVELAND – Three teenagers accused of shooting a catholic priest, who was collecting eggs from his Cleveland church ‘ s chicken coop are sued.
The Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County prosecutor said Friday that 16-year-olds Amin Walker, and Jaylen Miller and 18-year-old Kendra Robinson face attempted murder, felonious violence, aggravated theft and other charges.
Prosecutors say the 65-year-old priest of St. Mary Catholic Church was “attacked” in December by Walker and Miller, who demanded that he hand over the eggs. Prosecutors say the priest started to walk away, ask the teens to fire multiple rounds that missed as the priest slipped out and fell to the ground. They say that the teenagers left in a stolen van, where Robinson was waiting.
Walker and Miller in the first instance were brought in as young animals.
Court records do not indicate whether the teens have been assigned lawyers.
