COVINGTON, Ky. -- New details emerged Friday in the death of a former Holmes High School football standout -- showing a calculated, cold-blooded conspiracy to kill a young man.
Dasean Peterson, 19, was shot to death in his front yard in the 1700 block of Gerard Street in Covington on Sunday, Oct. 27.
A little more than 48 hours after his death, four adults and two juveniles were arrested. A day later, two more adults were arrested.
Jamell Darden, James Young, Mikyle Holloway, Hassan Abdullah, Reginald Bates and Eugene Smith are charged in connection with Peterson's killing. A 16- and 17-year-old are also charged in the case.
With each arrest, investigators said more details in the case began to unravel.
According to the latest report, Peterson's shooting death wasn't a random slaying, but a coordinated plot.
Before the shooting, police said the eight held a meeting with murder on their minds.
The motive: a feud over marijuana that police say had reached a boiling point.
Starting in Alexandria, the suspects jumped in several cars and formed a convoy to locate Peterson and retaliate, according to the report.
At Peterson's vigil on Wednesday, Oct. 30, his mother said those involved must have had no heart to get in a car and choose to kill someone.
"Everybody loved Sean," Birgitte Peterson said. "He would give you some shoes if you didn't have them, cleats if you needed them and he did everything for his team, he did for his friends, for his family -- that's why I don't understand why he is gone."
Friends, family and even strangers gathered that day to help honor Peterson, a young father, aspiring rapper and latest victim of a dispute settled by violent street justice.
