September 5, 2019

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Three teenagers have been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old boy on the front porch of his Tacoma home in July.

The News Tribune reports a girl and two boys were booked into Remann Hall Juvenile Detention Center Wednesday.

Police believe the three are responsible for the death of Jamone Pratt on July 30.

Police say Pratt was on his porch when he got into some kind of a dispute with the others around 12:40 p.m.

Neighbors called 911 to report hearing gunshots and seeing at least two cars speed away.

Officers arrived to find Pratt suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.

He died that night at Tacoma General Hospital.

No motive has been released.
