Teens Kill Iraq Vet for $5K
Associated Press | January 24, 2007
DETROIT - Three teenage relatives have been charged in the death of an Iraq War veteran who was gunned down and robbed shortly after cashing a tax refund check for more than $5,000.
Steven Johnson, 15, was charged as an adult with first-degree murder, while his brother, William, and cousin, Duane Johnson, both 17, were charged with conspiring to rob and kill Bush. All three were arraigned Monday.
Authorities said Duane Johnson's mother had prepared the tax return for Terron Bush, 24, who was confronted by a gunman as he left a check-cashing store.
Bush was shot once in the abdomen as he handed over his money, but the gunman shot him three more times, his cousin, Dwight Bush said.
Another cousin, Gerald Bush, was shot once in the back as he tried to flee the gunman. He was released from a hospital Saturday but still has a bullet lodged near his spine.
Terron Bush had a fiancee and a 4-month-old daughter. He served aboard a Navy aircraft carrier during the war in Iraq.
may he rest in peace...
