Teen gunned down in front of his home

June 22, 2005

Albany-- Fourteen-year-old Hakeem Kendrick was shot and killed about 12:30 this morning in the 1400 block of Avalon Avenue. Now Police are searching for an 18-year-old suspect, who is considered armed and dangerous.

The victim attended Robert Cross Middle School. Relatives say that Kendrick was in his front yard, when they heard four shots. "I got up out of the bed. I went out there, and surely there was my baby out there lying in the road. In a puddle of blood," said the Victim's Great Grandmother, Carrie Kendrick.

Investigators say Hakeem was shot once in the head. Now Police are searching for 18-year-old Ronald Jermaine King. He lives on Lincoln Avenue, just three blocks from where the shooting occurred this morning.

Investigators say they have no evidence the murder was gang related, but family members say it could have been. Police are asking anyone who knows where King is to call them.

Anyone caught hiding him will be charged.
