A 25-year-old Lakewood man was charged Monday with aggravated murder following Friday’s shooting on Waterbury Avenue that left a 17-year-old boy dead and another man injured.
Andre Daniels of 1588 Lakewood Ave., was charged with aggravated murder for the shooting death of Charles Wilson, 17, of Cleveland, who was killed in the shooting at 2051 Waterbury Ave. on Friday night.
Daniels is also the suspected shooter of 20-year-old Frederick Burt, of Cleveland, who was hospitalized for treatment of a gunshot wound to his leg, Lakewood Police Chief Timothy Malley said.

“The investigation is ongoing with additional charges possible for these and other suspects,” according to a press release issued by Chief Timothy Malley.
