De’Angelo Tashean Princeton Tolliver Edwards, 16-years-old, who is the suspect in the fatal shooting of Keisha Leann Huntington,18-years-old, last Thursday has been charged as an adult for murder.

Tolliver is being also being charged with robbery. He is suspected of firing three rounds from a 9mm weapon, fatally striking Huntington in the back as she was driving away with her boyfriend in the passenger seat.

Huntington’s boyfriend had arranged to buy 150-dollars of marijuana from Tolliver and had been a customer for the past two months. The meeting in the 1400 block of N. Woodburn had been arranged on Snapchat. According to the probable cause affidavit, during the meeting Tolliver instead demanded that Huntington and her boyfriend give him all their property.

As Huntington was driving away, she told her boyfriend she’d been shot before crashing into a parked car in the 1700 block of N. College. Huntington’s back window was shattered, and a bullet damaged the rear bumper and headrest. The bullet that hit the headrest traveled through the driver’s side seat striking Huntington in the back.

The boyfriend only knew the suspect as “D-Lo” but police were able to use his Snapchat username to cross reference other social media and develop a suspect. Tolliver was located later at his father’s home and taken into custody where he invoked his rights to an attorney after being informed of his Miranda rights.

Huntington’s boyfriend told police he paid Tolliver the 150-dollars and told his girlfriend to drive before the shots were fired at them.
