A second teen has been charged with killing an 18-year-old Chicago high school student outside the school earlier this month in the Far South Side Jeffery Manor neighborhood, authorities said.

Jarone Carter, 16, has been charged as an adult with first-degree murder, attempted armed robbery and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, said Andrew Conklin, a spokesman for the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office.

A 14-year-old boy has also been charged with the murder but his name has not been released because he is being tried as a juvenile.

Carter, of the 10100 block of South Paxton Avenue, and the younger boy are accused of the Oct. 19 fatal shooting and attempted robbery of Terrance Wright in the 9900 block of South Yates Avenue, authorities said.
