Formal charges were forthcoming, prosecutors said. The teens have not been identified.According totheaffidavit for the teens' arrests, filed Oct. 22, the three were filmed on surveillance cameras leaving together, coming to Grant's home and luring him into an outdoor stairwell, where they ambushed him.
One text message from the 17-year-old male said "murder was coming soon" to the victim, to which the 17-year-old girl, identified as his girlfriend, "jokingly" offered to help, according to police.Story continuesThe motive for the killing was that Grant allegedly had sex with an unnamed girl, which infuriated the 17-year-old boy because he had an "emotional connection" with the girl, police said an investigation of the teens' text messages revealed.
