17 Count Indictment for Two Adults Involved in Buckeye Road Shooting


Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley announced that Larissa Harris and her brother Marvin Harris have been indicted for the November 24, 2017, shooting that seriously injured five juveniles and killed a 12-year-old boy.

The indictment carries 17 charges including Aggravated Murder, Murder, Attempted Murder, Felonious Assault, and Improperly Handling Firearms In a Motor Vehicle.

“These individuals took part in a ruthless ambush that left our community in shock,” said Prosecutor O’Malley. “Our office intends to bindover the juveniles and fight for the maximum penalty for all involved.”

The evening of November 24, Larissa Harris, 21, was driving her vehicle in a commercial area on Buckeye Road with her 18-year-old brother, Marvin. Occupants of the car, which included juveniles as well, got out and fired at least 20 rounds into a group of juveniles. Abdel Bashiti, 12, was in his family’s store and looked outside to see the commotion when he was shot and killed.

The juveniles are in custody and face charges of Aggravated Murder, Murder, and Felonious Assault in juvenile court for their role in the shooting.

Arraignment is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. on December 22.
