Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh announced today that a Grand Jury has indicted Terrance Roane, 18, of Columbus on the following counts:
* Felonious Assault, a second-degree felony, with a firearm specification
* Discharging a Firearm on or Near a Prohibited Premises, a third-degree felony, with a firearm specification
* Tampering with Evidence, a third-degree felony
* Carrying a Concealed Weapon, a fourth-degree felony
Roane and Vernon Singleton were arrested following the August 3 shooting of 11-year-old Carmella Holley. Holley was struck and killed by a stray bullet from a gunfight in which Roane and Singleton were allegedly involved.
The Summit County Grand Jury found insufficient evidence to indict Singleton. The Akron Police Department and the Summit County Prosecutor’s Office are continuing to seek evidence in the hopes of obtaining an indictment against the person responsible for Carmella’s death. We strongly encourage anyone with information concerning the shooting of Carmella Holley to contact the Akron Police Department.
