Turf Boys Indicted on Shooting Charges

Three teens will go to trial on charges they took part in a shooting spree. A Chatham County grand jury indicted the trio today.

Lyeron Rice, Damien Gaines, and Tarus Green--members of the so-called Turf Boys--were formally charged with aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during a crime.

The charges today stem from one of three shootings. They're charged with shooting James Hill on Mississippi aAvenue on April 12.

Tarus Green is already serving one year in prison for escaping the Savannah Regional Youth Detention Center. He escaped by climbing up on a basketball goal and jumping over a 14-foot fence.
