Juvenile charged with murder

A juvenile was charged with murder in the shooting of a Wayne County man.

Monticello police found Matthew Young, 20, dead from a gunshot wound Wednesday night, according to WKYT. The investigation led police to a 16-year-old, who is being held in the juvenile detention center in Adair County.

The teenager is to return to Wayne County on Friday to appear in court, WKYT reported.

Witnessing a crime and reporting it can be just as frightening as being the victim of a crime. Here’s what you should do if you witness illegal activity.
