Teen pleads to murder charge in death of boy, 12

CLEVELAND (AP) — A 17-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to murder and other adult charges in a shooting that wounded five and killed a 12-year-old boy outside his father’s beauty supply store in Cleveland.

Authorities say A-Mier Taylor also pleaded guilty Monday in Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County to attempted murder in the November 2017 shooting that killed Abdel Bashiti and injured five teens.

Messages seeking comment were left with Taylor’s attorneys.

Police said around 20 shots were fired and that a stray bullet hit Abdel. He had been at the shop helping during a Black Friday sale.

Taylor was 15 at the time.

Another 17-year-old boy and a 23-year-old woman have pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter charges. A 20-year-old man awaits trial on aggravated murder charges.

Taylor is to be sentenced in October.
