Pair Indicted in Shooting Death of Teen

Sept. 26, 2018 – Two men have been indicted in the shooting death of a Frayser teen following an argument in April, Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich said Wednesday.
A grand jury indicted Jonquett Haggett, 19, and Will Vaughn, 26, on first-degree murder charges in the death of 19-year-old Cameron Horne on April 16, 2018, as he was walking near Baskin and Dellwood.
Investigators said the defendants were riding in a car when Vaughn told his girlfriend to pull the vehicle over so he and Haggett could get out. The two then chased Horne and fired shots at him.
Horne was found with multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead a short time later at a hospital. Haggett had exchanged words with the victim and his girlfriend shortly before the shooting.
Haggett and Vaughn were arrested and charged the following day. They are being held in the Shelby County Jail without bond.
The case is being handled by Chief Prosecutor Paul Hagerman of the Crime Strategies Prosecution Unit which incorporates and expands the work of the Multi-Agency Gang Unit, the Organized Crime Unit, Project Safe Neighborhood/Gundone, GunStat, the Safe Streets Task Force and the Violent Crime Unit.
