WYOMING, Mich. -- Two teenagers are facing murder charges in the Wednesday night shooting of 17-year-old Isaiah Blue.

According to the Kent County Prosecutor's Office, Mitchell Savickas, 18, and Daniel Benavides, 16, are both facing felony murder charges in connection with Blue's death.   They are also charged with three counts of armed robbery, carrying a concealed weapon and felony firearms.

A 15-year-old male is facing three counts of armed robbery in connection with the incident.

According to police, Blue was shot and killed late Wednesday night after he and two others exited a Rapid bus on 44th Street at Rhodes Avenue. The three suspects followed them and once they caught up with Blue's group, two of them pulled out handguns and attempted to rob them.  Blue and the others took off running and the other teens opened fire.

Blue was a junior at Kelloggsville High School, according to officials from the district.  He was new to the area this year and had moved from Pennsylvania.

The three suspects were arrested Thursday.

    So where did the urban youths steal their weapons ? or did they use the fictional “gun show loop hole”.
    Why no charges of possessing stolen property?

    As a lawful gun owner I’m tired of being blamed for the actions of criminals. If the anti-gun lobby really cared about the lives of children they would address the real issues rather than use those deaths as the excuse to subvert MY rights.

    Parents of these uncivilized murdering teen inbreds should also be charged. Parents knew what type of kids they have, hardly first time for armed robbery for them, just first time caught.
    Parents fully responsible for breeding and raising criminal, violent, unstable uneducated, uncivilized
    kids. , Weapons at 15. Assault, robbery.
    Hope they breed no more if these. Need a spay and neuter service for these parents.
