Mass Shooting – Killed – Male Teen – David Carpenter-Kohler (Barberton, OH)

Two men have been arrested in connection with the New Year’s Eve shooting deaths of a Barberton father and his two teenage children.

Michael Deon Hendon, 22, and Eric Donta Hendon, 30, both of Akron, were arrested Friday on three counts each of aggravated murder.

Additional charges, including a potential death penalty specification indictment, will be considered when the case is reviewed later this month by a Summit County grand jury.

The arrests came on the same day that John Kohler, the Barberton father whose home was targeted by armed robbers on New Year’s Eve, died of apparent gunshot wounds.

He was shot in the home invasion burglary that also claimed the life of his 18-year-old stepdaughter, Ashley Carpenter, and his son, David Kohler Carpenter, 14.

Kohler’s girlfriend, Ronda Blankenship, 38, survived the shooting and is recovering at an area hospital.

Autopsies this week showed that Ashley died of a single gunshot wound to the head. Her brother, David, died of multiple gunshot wounds to the head. He also suffered defensive wounds to his arms, reports show. They were found together in a back bedroom.

The haunting 911 call from a Barberton woman paints a picture of the aftermath of a shooting New Year’s Eve that left her and her boyfriend wounded and his two teenage children dead.

“Help, help,” a wounded Ronda Blankenship pleads to a dispatcher in the conversation released Thursday by Southwest Summit Communications. “I’m bleeding everywhere … my boyfriend is here. I have two kids here … Help, help, help. Oh God.”

The teens were visiting their father, John Kohler, 42, at his 7th Street Northeast home on New Year’s Eve.

His girlfriend, Rhonda Blankenship, 38, was also shot, but survived.

A call for help was made around 6:50 p.m.

AKRON, Ohio — One of two brothers accused of killing three people and shooting a fourth during a home invasion robbery in Barberton is mentally unfit for the death penalty, a judge ruled on Monday.

Michael Hendon, 23, of Akron, still faces aggravated murder charges in the Dec. 31, 2013 attack. Summit County Judge Amy Corrigal Jones ruled that Hendon mental disabilities barred him from being executed under state and federal laws.

Hendon is scheduled for a court hearing Tuesday to determine how the case will proceed.

Hendon and his brother, Eric Hendon, 32, are accused of breaking into a 7th Street S.W. home in order to steal drugs and money, according to police.

Killed – Male Teen – Jonathan Pearcey (DeKalb, GA)


A DeKalb County teen shot in the face last week died over the weekend, police said.

Jonathan Pearcey, 15, died on Saturday, after being in critical condition from the gunshot wound he suffered early Friday morning, police said.

Pearcey’s friend, 17-year-old Jacob Christmas, was arrested mid-day Friday and charged with aggravated assault in Pearcey’s shooting, police said.

Christmas is now charged with murder, DeKalb County Police Capt. Steven Fore told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Fore said there had been an ongoing dispute between the teens that “finally came to a head.” The teens were close friends and it wasn’t uncommon for one to be at the other’s home.

Police said Christmas had been at Pearcey’s home hours before the shooting. Christmas left, Fore said, and returned around 2:30 a.m., and shot Pearcey.

Police were called, and Christmas was later arrested at his home where officers found a handgun, Fore said.

The teen was one of a number of people at a home on Hillcrest Drive SE when he was shot at about 2:30 a.m. on Dec. 27.

Triple Murder – Killed – Male Teen – Kasson Mormon (Newark, NJ)

Kasson Mormon

NEWARK — One of the teenage victims of a Christmas night shooting in Newark was a 13-year-old girl taking out the trash, a law enforcement source said today.

Zainee Hailey, 13, was killed while taking garbage out of her Schley Street house, the source said. She was a student at Bragaw Avenue Elementary School in Newark.

Also killed was Kasson Morman, 15, a resident of North Seventh Street in Newark, the source said. Mormon was a student at Central High School in Newark.

A third teenager was also injured in the shooting. The source did not identify him, but said the teenager is a 14-year-old student at Weequahic High School in Newark.

NEWARK — A 15-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to fatally shooting three teenagers on a Newark street on Christmas night last year, a spokeswoman for the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office said.

The boy pleaded guilty on Monday in juvenile court in connection with the murders of Zainee Hailey, Kasson Morman and Abdul Frazier, said Katherine Carter, spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office.

Under the terms of a plea agreement, he faces up to 40 years in prison when he is sentenced, Carter said. But Carter said juveniles are sentenced to what is called an “indeterminate term,” meaning the parole board can release him when it determines he is rehabilitated.

The boy opened fire in the 100 block of Schley Street, because he felt “disrespected” after one of the boys apparently hit on his girlfriend, law enforcement sources have said.

Hailey, 13, was gunned down as she and her younger brother carried trash bags to the street from her family’s third-floor apartment. Hailey and Morman, 15, died shortly after the attack, and Frazier, 14, died from his injuries a few weeks later.

NEWARK — The third teenager shot on a South Ward street on Christmas night died early this morning in the hospital, authorities said,

Abdul Frazier, 14, was one of the three teenagers shot on Schley Street. He has spent the past three weeks at University Hospital where he died at 4:57 a.m. today, said Thomas Fennelly, the chief assistant Essex County Prosecutor.

The innocent Newark girl died in a hail of bullets intended for somebody else after she and her 7-year-old brother carried the holiday trash to the curb, authorities and neighbors said.

A visitor, Kasson Morman, 15, was also slain when the gunfire erupted around 10 p.m. Wednesday, while a 14-year-old boy was shot but survived — critically wounded with a bullet lodged in his spine.
