Two arrested in murder of gay youth

Two young people are facing murder charges in the slaying of a gay youth on Chicago's Southeast Side.

Jarone Carter, 16, and a 14-year-old, who will be tried as a juvenile, have been arrested for the murder of Terrance Wright, an 18-year-old gay youth.

The 14 year-old was ordered to be held in custody. Carter's bond hearing is Oct. 31.

According to Cook County state's attorney's office spokesperson Andy Conklin, Wright was waiting for a bus at 9901 S. Yates St. when the juvenile approached him and put a gun to his chest. Carter began to rummage through his pockets. Wright and the juvenile fought over the gun, and the juvenile discharged the gun into Carter's chest.

Five witnesses identified the juvenile in a line-up, said Conklin.

Wright was transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where he died as a result of the injury.

Carter faces charges of first-degree murder, attempted armed robbery and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

According to multiple reports, Wright recently transferred high schools to evade his anti-gay bullies. Wright was attending Banner Academy South High School. His family believes his murder could be an anti-gay hate crime.

Conklin said that neither defendant has been charged with a hate crime.

Windy City Times will update as details become available.
