Police: 2 teens charged in shooting death of Waterloo man

August 30, 2018

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Police say two teenagers have been charged in the 2017 shooting death of a Waterloo man.

The Courier reported Thursday that police have arrested a 15-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy. Both are charged with first-degree murder and first-degree robbery in the killing of 39-year-old Cedric Roy Craft.

The Associated Press does not typically name juveniles charged with crimes.

Police were called to Craft’s home on Dec. 11, 2017, for a report of a break-in. Arriving officers found Craft with a single gunshot wound to the head.

The older teen has been charged as an adult, while the younger teen faces charges in juvenile court. The 17-year-old is being held without bond, while the 15-year-old remains at a detention center.
