JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Three teenagers accused of robbing and killing a 49-year-old man on Monday night to get a little gas money. They walked away with $3 and the possibility of spending the rest of their lives in prison.
Grady Williamson was walking in the 1300 block of Oakhurst Avenue about 9:25 p.m. when he was robbed stabbed. He died at Shands-Jacksonville Medical Center early the next day.
Witnesses described the teens and a suspect vehicle to police, and that information was passed on to patrol officers. On Wednesday, an off-duty officer spotted the car on Myrtle Avenue and the three teenagers were taken in for questioning.
According to police, they admitted to robbing and killing Williamson.
Marvin Clark, 15, Thomas Partlow, 16, and Gibson Wright III, 17, were all booked into the Duval County jail and charged with murder and armed robbery.
We have a failed juvenile justice system that plays catch and release as kids commit escalating crimes. Watch your ass out there, folks. Imagine what they’d do for a $20.
