CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) – A teen who was a star football player at Benedictine High School in Cleveland was arraigned on a multi-count indictment Friday.
Duane Jackson, 18, is charged with murdering a 13-year-old boy in a drive-by shooting in Euclid.
Maurco Toler was shot multiple times on Dec. 11 while playing in the front yard of a friend’s house on Zeman Ave.
Police believe the shooting was targeted.
Jackson faces 9 charges including aggravated murder.
He was arrested at Benedictine High School on Jan. 12.
Euclid Police Detective Steve Shubert told FOX 8 the investigation is continuing and they expect to make additional arrests.
“We are not done yet,” Shubert said.
Jackson was indicted by a Cuyahoga County grand jury this week.
He was being held on a $2 million bond, but the judge reduced that bond to $1 million in his arraignment Friday.
A not guilty plea was entered on his behalf.
Jackson is scheduled for a pretrial hearing on Feb. 1, where we could learn what evidence prosecutors have in the case.
