MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (WDTN) – A Middletown teen charged in connection with a deadly shooting outside the Dayton mall will face a judge Thursday morning.

16-year-old Keyan Moore will be arraigned on one count of involuntary manslaughter and one count of robbery.

Prosecutors say he was with 16-year-old Jawaad Jabbar in December when Jabbar tried to rob a man at gunpoint.

The man, who holds a valid permit to carry a concealed weapon, pulled his own gun and shot Jabbar killing him.

Prosecutors say because Moore participated in the robbery, he can legally be held accountable for Jabbar’s death.
