A 16-year-old boy accused of fatally shooting a woman and injuring another will be tried as an adult, a Lucas County Juvenile Court judge ruled Wednesday. 

Emanuel Garner, 16, is charged with murder and felonious assault. Judge Denise Navarre Cubbon found probable cause that a crime occurred Sept. 24 in the 1800 block of MaComber Street. The youth’s case is now being transferred to the adult division.

If convicted of murder, the teen could face 15 years to life in prison. 

He is accused of shooting and killing De’Asia Wallace, 20, and injuring Tanaysia Young, 15, following a street brawl that broke out in the intersection of MaComber and Isherwood streets, according to Toledo police. 

The Garner youth is believed to have fired multiple rounds from a residence in the 1800 block of MaComber Street, said Detective Paul Marchyok, who testified Tuesday during a probable cause hearing. The house sits several feet away from the road, he said. 

Both women were standing in the front yard when they were shot, the detective said. Ms. Wallace collapsed on the sidewalk, where police attempted to administer aid to her, a video of the incident posted to social media showed. She later died at ProMedica Toledo Hospital. 

A second shooter who wounded the Garner youth in the leg has not been charged, Detective Marchyok said.
