Second Arrest Made In Murder Of Kinston Teen

There's been a second arrest in the murder of a Kinston High School student. Police say a 15-year-old boy has been charged in the death of Rasheed Jones.

The juvenile was charged with first degree murder and turned over to the North Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice.

The 17-year-old Jones was gunned down on Independence Street around 4:30 p.m. last Thursday. The next day Kyliel Wade turned himself in and was charged with murder after Jones died Saturday at Pitt County Memorial Hospital.

Police tell us they are still looking for a third suspect in the killing of Jones.

Jones' funeral is Saturday at 1:00 pm at St. Peter Church of Christ Disciples of Christ in Kinston. Visitation will be held Friday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 pm at the church.

    I wish it was legal to "paint ball" cars with loud stereos blasting obscene lyrics in public

    I was stopped at a traffic light the other day. My windows began to rattle because the car that pulled up beside me had a very loud stereo booming from their vehicle. I heard this; "I'm ready to die, yeah, I'm ready to die, yo, so ready to die", and more that I didn't really want to hear. I finally tried rolling up the car window on the driver's side, but to no avail; the thumping and window rattling went on until we all pulled away as the light changed. I do believe MTV and much Rap music encourages young people's negative behaviors. This is not the first time I have heard illicit lyrics in public. I often hear this same thing in parking lots, and some of it has sexual sounds too. I wish there was a noise ordinance to squelch 'over the top' car stereos and thought there was, within the city limits. Anyway, if these young people are not influenced by the subliminal audio/video gang messages sent by these songs/videos, I would be very surprised.

    I never said they were in a gang. you dont have to be in a gang to be living the "gang mentality" that for some stupid reason has become appealing to our youth. 15 year olds shooting 17 year olds in the head in the middle of the street in broad daylight...what do you call it then? you dont have to be in a gang to be living like a ganster and thats what this is, if you are honest you will agree

    what makes you assume that they are affiliated with a gang?! If a white man had been shot by two white boys, do you think you would be asking about possible gang affiliations.

    The black youth is just pawns in a sadistic ploy orchestrated by certain elites of this country. It done mostly threw music. The worst message a rapper sent to the youth the more awards,money and fame he receive. (WATCH THIS NOT GET POSTED!) And now the youth mines are being flooded with gang banging guns money sex and drugs! It's safe to say this will never stop, it makes too much money. Some one will get paid off the victim death(funeral director, autopsy people.cops) people will get paid from the court process of the accuse(judges, lawyer,DA's) and so on and so on. It's all big business.

    i feel so sorry for this boys family and the boys that did it. one life is gone and 3 others are practicly ruined. when are the black youth going to realize that the gang mentality is no good? this is not a "black thing" this is a total breakdown in the "afican american" youth. they have become brain-washed by the vulgar rap music that promotes violence and hatred amongst themselves. i dont know what to say, blacks in other parts of the world just dont act like this. something has to happen now!!! all of you rap stars that know you can make money by brain-washing our youth and all of the gang leaders need to be brought to justice for the crimes against your own people!!! this is just sickening. WITN has a way of not posting comments from people that speak the truth but i hope they post this and i hope at least one person, hopefully more, will learn from this tragic event in the history we are making for ourselves

    If the thugs are proven guilty, then hang them.

    what ever happened to the gang laws, these three should be tried as a gang if there is any affiliation with a gang and sentenced accordingly!
