CLEVELAND – Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley announced that a Cuyahoga County grand jury has returned an indictment charging Meonte Robinson, 22, for the murder of a 17-year-old Glenville high school student in Euclid.

“This case is a perfect example of the carnage that guns are causing in our community. We are seeing teenagers with increased access to guns, and unfortunately, in this case, a high school student went to purchase one and lost his life.”
