Suspects in area shooting facing Monday court date

STEUBENVILLE — Two juveniles arrested in connection with a fatal shooting in Toronto will be in juvenile court at 11:30 a.m. on Monday to hear the charges against them.

Dylan Moore, 18, of Toronto, was riding in a vehicle stopped in the 500 block of North Seventh Street on Saturday evening when he was shot. Monroe was pronounced dead at 9:57 p.m. on Monday in a Pittsburgh hospital.

Ka’Saun Carlock, 15, of Steubenville and Jacob A. Gill, 16, of Toronto were charged with aggravated murder and aggravated robbery, each with a firearm specification, and tampering with evidence.

Logan J. Cain, 20, of Toronto also has been arrested in connection with the case, but charges have yet to be filed against him.

Carlock and Gill are scheduled to appear Monday in juvenile court, where Juvenile Judge Joseph Corabi will read the charges to them.

County Assistant Prosecutor Samuel Pate also has filed a motion for a discretionary bind-over to have the cases transferred to the adult division of common pleas court. A probable cause hearing will be scheduled, then a study will be conducted to determine if the juveniles can be rehabilitated in the juvenile court system.

Toronto Police Chief Randy Henry described the shooting as a drug deal gone bad.

Toronto Police Department officials have been looking for the gun used in the shooting for the past several days but have not been able to locate the weapon. Police Capt. Rick Parker said a key piece of evidence in the case was recovered Tuesday evening.
