Suburban teen acquitted in South Los Angeles gang killing
LOS ANGELES (AP) — An 18-year-old man has been acquitted for his alleged role in a gang-related killing in South Los Angeles last year when he was a senior at a suburban high school.
City News Service reports Cameron Terrell was found not guilty Monday of one count of murder and two counts of attempted murder. He had pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors said the white teen from upscale Palos Verdes allegedly joined a predominantly black LA street gang. Terrell was identified in a complaint with the moniker “White Boy.”
Police said he drove the car involved in the October 2017 shooting death of Justin Holmes. Two juveniles were also arrested and charged with murder.
Terrell’s family pulled him from classes at Palos Verdes High after parents called him a danger to students.
