Murdered Newport Teen Identified, Suspect Charged

D'Angelo Wilson, recent Newport HS grad, was shot and killed Wednesday night in Southgate/source: Facebook

The 18-year-old Newport teen who was shot in the head and killed Wednesday night at a Newport apartment complex has been identified as D'angelo Wilson, the Enquirer is reporting.

Wilson, who died shortly after the incident at University Hospital, had just graduated from Newport High School this past June, and had plans to attend Northern Kentucky University this fall.

The report also states that a male juvenile suspect was placed under arrest Thursday morning and charged with murder.

Nearby residents told WCPO that the incident seemed to involve a home invasion, but there has been no official statement made as to what led to the deadly exchange.

Correction: A previous version of this story reported that the shooting occurred in Southgate. It has been corrected to report the shooting occurred in Newport.
