Trial Underway - Ephraim Brown

The trial regarding the murder of 11-year old Ephraim Brown has finally begun. Ephraim was killed in a gun battle between rivaling youth back in July of 2007. Ephraim was at a gathering with his six year old cousin near the Jane/Sheppard complex when he was caught in the crossfire.

The crown says they will have a witness testify about the bad vibe at the party and a not well thought out guest list. The two rival gangs, Baghdad Crew and Five Point Generals which include the accused men Gregory Sappleton and Akiel Eubank were in each others faces before they fired shots.

Ephraim had missed a warning for him to run as he was listening to his MP3 player, he was shot in the neck and died on the spot. Both Gregory and Akiel have been charged with second degree murder and will face the courts.
