Three Face Charges in Killing of Delaware Teen Brandon Wingo

Authorities say three men -- two of them still teenagers -- have been charged in the shooting death of a 15-year-old Delaware high school student. 

The Attorney General's Office announced Thursday that the suspects were indicted Monday on murder, conspiracy, weapons and gang participation charges in the death of Brandon Wingo last month

A Department of Justice spokesman said Wingo was targeted in a gang-related killing as he walked home from school, but no other details were available. 

Authorities say 20-year-old Kevon Harris-Dickerson of Newark, 19-year-old Zaahir Smith of Newark and 18-year-old Diamonte Taylor of Wilmington were members of the Shoot To Kill gang. 

Thirty-four-year-old Latasha Pierce of Wilmington was indicted on charges related to providing a firearm to a person prohibited and falsely reporting it stolen.
