For two Maumee teenagers, what began as a potential drug deal in February turned into a robbery attempt followed by a murder, court testimony indicates.
Tyreese Davis, 17, testified Friday in Lucas County Juvenile Court that Andrew Foster-Martin, 17, fired two shots into a vehicle Feb. 22 near Hillcrest and Hazelhurst avenues, striking Collin Doyle, 17, and Armond Batey, 16, in the back.
The Doyle youth, who was hit by a gunshot to the torso, later died at ProMedica Toledo Hospital, while the Batey youth remains paralyzed, officials said.
On Friday, during a probable-cause hearing, the Davis youth said although he planned on selling an ounce of marijuana to young Batey on Feb. 22, the Foster-Martin youth had a gun and planned to rob the teens.
As the vehicle that the two victims were in quickly drove off, he said the Foster-Martin youth fired two shots. He is charged with murder and aggravated robbery.
The Davis youth said the two of them then drove back to his home, and he testified the alleged gunman then warned him not to say anything about the incident, adding that threats were also made against his family.
The Davis youth, who is charged in the case with complicity to murder and aggravated robbery, said he later learned what happened to the two other teens.
