MAN SUSPECTED OF KILLING TEENS IN PARK IS ARRESTED

The man suspected of gunning down two teen-agers in an Albany park was taken into custody Friday by police.

Jesus LeBron, 19, was charged with two counts each of second-degree murder and first-degree robbery, all felonies. Three others have been charged in the double murder.

Last Friday, maintenance crews found the bodies of 18-year-old Larry Omar Miller and 17-year-old Lamar Wells Robinson in Albany's Washington Park. A semiautomatic handgun was found near the bodies, and police pursued but lost a car that sped from the scene.

The rented Oldsmobile was discovered later.

Police suspect that LeBron and 18-year-old Justin Franklin fled in the car. Aaron Bebo, 24, and Shymal Curry, 19, allegedly ran from the scene and called a cab to flee the area.

Authorities said the suspects did not know the victims and apparently were driving around the park looking for someone to rob. The teens were forced to get on their knees and were then shot in the chest.
