A grand jury will hear the case against a man accused of gunning down a 19-year-old as he waited outside a Gates store for a new pair of sneakers.
WHEC-TV in Rochester reports that 21-year-old Kesean McKenzie-Smith’s case was waived to a grand jury on Friday.
McKenzie-Smith of Rochester was charged Tuesday with second-degree murder and attempted robbery in connection with the killing of Montre Bradley.
Bradley was in line outside a closed shoe store about 4 a.m. two weeks ago to buy a new pair of $220 Nike Foamposites.
Police say McKenzie-Smith and another man, 19-year-old William Wilkins, accosted people in the line and demanded cash at gunpoint. They say the pair stole cash and property from several people before shooting Bradley.
