A second Hamilton teen has been charged in the shooting death of 13-year-old Jaraius Gilbert Jr.
A Butler County grand jury indictment was unsealed today charging Kameron O. Tunstall with murder, four counts of felonious assault and discharge of a firearm on or near prohibited premises.
Tunstall, 18, was booked into the Butler County Jail this afternoon.
Tunstall currently has no bond, and arraignment on the indictment has not yet been scheduled.
The arrest comes on the same day co-defendant Miquan Hubbard, 18, was indicted on the same charges.
All charges against both men include the specification that a gun was used in the crimes, which would increase the sentence if convicted.
Hubbard is being held in the Butler County Jail in lieu of a $2 million bond.
Butler County Prosecutor Michael Gmoser said the defendants were complicit in the slaying of Gilbert, an eighth-grader at Wilson Middle School.
Hamilton police arrested Hubbard three days after the slaying of Gilbert.
Gilbert was shot and killed at about 6:30 p.m. Aug. 29 at an apartment complex in the 800 block of Front Street, police said.
The boy died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Butler County Coroner’s Office. His death has been ruled a homicide.
A second victim — Datorion Marcus Burns, 19, of Hamilton — suffered multiple gunshot wounds, according to Hamilton police. Burns was taken to an area hospital for treatment and was expected to survive.
