LYNDHURST, Ohio (WJW) — Four teens have been charged with the murder of a local entrepreneur.
Juvenile complaints obtained from the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court list four suspects, who were each 16 or 17 at the time of the shooting, and are now all adults:
- Jahseem Sales, 18, of Cleveland
- Abu Hakim, 19, of Cleveland
- Lae’Juan Nasir Robinson, 19, of Streetsboro
- Reginald Bruce Jr., 19, of East Cleveland
Each faces an unclassified felony count of aggravated murder — which allege the drive-by shooting was planned — as well as additional murder, assault and weapons charges. The violent charges all carry various firearms specifications with additional penalties of one to five years.
The first complaint was filed against Sales on Aug. 14. The rest were filed on Wednesday, Sept. 6.
Ferguson opened the high-end tennis shoe store the previous March. The day he was shot he had just handed off a Mother’s Day gift to his mother, Tanisha Ferguson.
Surveillance footage showed a car — later determined to be stolen from Warrensville Heights — pulling up to him, then coming gunfire from inside. The 23-year-old died days later.
“He asked me to go. … He said, ‘Go, run mommy,'” Tanisha Ferguson told FOX 8 in July 2022. It’s like he didn’t want nothing to happen to me. I just still think in the back of my head sometimes. I wonder, did he die thinking I died too?”
Lyndhurst police previously said it appeared to be a targeted shooting, but the motive was unclear.
A $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest or indictment was announced in July 2022.
