Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputies responding to an unrelated call on May 13 found a 20-year-old man bleeding from his head and yelling for help. The man told deputies to check Michigan Avenue for a car with another shooting victim inside, according to a Tuesday release from the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office announcing Abrams’ indictment.

When deputies found the car, they discovered a deceased teen shot multiple times who later was identified by the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office as 15-year-old J’Yon Kolby-Lee Manson-Coleman of Dayton.
