Three Teens Charged in Beating Death of 16-year-old Derrion Albert

Chicago, IL–(ENEWSPF)– The Chicago Breaking News Center is reporting that three teens have been charged with first degree murder in the beating death of 16-year-old Derrion Albert:

UPDATE: Three teenagers have been charged with first-degree murder in the beating death of Derrion Albert, according to the Cook County state’s attorney’s office. They are: Silvanus Shannon, 19; Eric Carson, 16; and Eugene Riley, 18. The three are expected to appear in bond court at noon.

Chicago police lined up in a show of force outside Fenger High School this morning in the wake of the beating death of 16-year-old Derrion Albert last week during a melee nearby.

Students trickled into the school at staggered intervals through this morning. Most arrived on foot wearing their standard uniform of khaki pants and black shirts.

Police patrolled the area in squad cars and staged a visible presence at the school’s entrance.

“We want to provide reassurance to the public that there’s a police presence and they can feel safe in the neighborhood and kids can feel safe at school,” said Morgan Park District Commander Michael Kuemmeth.

Today was the first day Fenger has been open since the fatal melee that swept up Albert, an honor roll student. All Chicago public schools were closed Friday for a staff day.
