ROOT — Two teenagers previously charged with attempting to shoot in February have been charged with the murder of a 14-year-old boy in March.

Emonjae James Kinney, 16, of the 1100 block of Park Ave., was charged with one count of first-degree intentional homicide and discharging a firearm from a vehicle.

Micah T. Lminggio, 15, of the 3200 block of Kinzie Ave., has been charged with one count of first-degree intentional homicide as an accessory to a felony.

Kinney is accused of firing the shots that killed Eugene “JR” T. Henderson in March, with Lminggio facing charges for his alleged association with the murder.

Henderson was a quiet kid with immense talent for football, one of his former coaches told the Journal Times. A GoFundMe page to support her family has raised over $11,500.

According to a criminal complaint:

At 10:25 p.m. on March 13, officers were dispatched to the 1800 block of Mead Street for a shooting.

Upon arrival, officers located a Chrysler with Henderson in the passenger seat suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.

He was later transported via Flight for Life to a Milwaukee area hospital, but died.

The windows were smashed by bullets.

Officers spoke to witnesses about the incident. One said he saw the driver of a black SUV stick his arm out the window and shoot twice before fleeing. Another witness said he heard of an accident and an officer noticed a lamp post ripped out of the ground that was on the sidewalk.

An investigator questioned a passenger in the Chrysler who said a vehicle stopped on his left side and fired shots through the rear and driver’s side windows. The vehicle then sped north.

The investigator reviewed the video which showed the Chrysler and the dark SUV. The SUV was identified as a blue Ford Edge.

During the investigation, the Ford Edge was located at the 3200 block of Kinzie Avenue and had front end damage consistent with a pole impact. Officers noticed two individuals exiting the residence and heading towards the car. One of them has been identified as Lminggio. Inside the car was an iPhone that belonged to Kinney. Location data showed he was in the area of ​​the shooting during the incident. There was also video of Kinney brandishing a gun days before the shooting.

The investigator spoke to a person who said he was in the Ford Edge with Lminggio, Kinney and another person during the shooting. He said Lminggio was the driver and Kinney fired shots from the Ford Edge into a vehicle before fleeing.

Lminggio, Kinney and Lminggio’s younger brother, 15-year-old Micah T. Lminggio, all face charges related to a shooting in February.

The Lminggio and Kinney brothers are associated with the Dirty P gang.

Kinney was given $500,000 cash bond and Lminggio was given $300,000 cash bond in Racine County Circuit Court on Wednesday. The two have a preliminary hearing on June 29 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., according to court records online.
