VIRGINIA – Five teenagers, including two females, were indicted Monday in the August murder of a 24-year-old man in Manassas.

Responding to a report of a shooting at 2:03 a.m. on August 30, officers found bullet holes in the front door of a home in the 10000 block of Massie Street.

The article goes on to state the following:

Inside the home, officers found Reynaldo Eliazar Araujo with gunshot wounds. He died at the scene, according to a statement from the Manassas City Police.

On August 31 and September 1, detectives arrested an 18-year-old man and two 19-year-old women on robbery charges in connection with the murder case.

On September 5, a 17-year-old boy was arrested by U.S. Marshals at the border in McAllen, Texas. He was charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

    No prison sentences for anyone that does not have the capacity to feel and know right from wrong. Taking another’s life with the intent of doing so should be an automatic death sentence …… I, for one, DO NOT want my tax dollars going to feed and cloth persons that do not value life. We need to begin having consequences that match the crime. Death for death….No pleas…..
