MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WREG)– Two brothers are facing serious charges after a teen was shot and killed in Horn Lake, Mississippi over the weekend.
Horn Lake Police say Ryan Turberville, 17, was found shot multiple times in the 3100 block of Edenshire Lane on Sunday after 10 p.m. He succumbed to his injuries before officers arrived.
A woman close to the situation said the teens were meeting up with the suspects. WREG was told there was a disagreement that led to the shooting. The teens then drove to a trusted adult’s home on Edenshire Lane.
Turberville’s mother, Julie Rogers, believes her son and his friend were meeting up with people to buy marijuana when things took a violent turn.
“Even if it was a fight over some drugs or weed or whatever it’s not worth taking the life of a child,” Rogers said. “They’ve taken my baby away from me and I want them to pay for that.”
Police later determined that Turberville’s injuries stemmed from a shots fired call in the 7000 block of Brandee that happened moments before police were called to Edenshire.
Investigators determined Kevon Smith, 17, was responsible for the shooting on Brandee and his brother Keihun Smith, 19, was with him at the time of the shooting.
Trinity Dubose said her friend, who is Tuberville’s girlfriend, was in the car at the time of the shooting. She was not hit.
“They were basically each other’s light and all, and it’s really broke her heart when, for him to pass away in her arms like that,” Dubose said.
Horn Lake Police said a third teen in the vehicle was also shot but is expected to survive.
The brothers were taken into custody without incident Monday. Kevon Smith has been charged with capital murder. Keihun Smith has been charged with felony conspiracy to commit a crime.
