A 19-year-old suspect is charged in the slaying of another teen who was found shot when he crashed into a Birmingham building.
Martez Willearl Jefferson is charged with capital murder in the June 5 killing of 18-year-old Rayshod Goldthwaite, according to court records made public Wednesday.
Jefferson is already in the county jail on charges stemming from a different shooting, also in June.
In Goldthwaite’s death, North Precinct officers were dispatched just after 1 a.m. that Sunday to 608 Second Ave. North, Officer Truman Fitzgerald previously said.
Once on the scene, they found a driver had wrecked into the building there.
Goldthwaite was unresponsive from a gunshot wound and pronounced dead on the scene by Birmingham Fire and Rescue Service.
Police said the victim was traveling in the 600 block of Third Avenue North when another vehicle pulled up alongside him and opened fire.
Jefferson is also charged with first-degree assault for the wounding of a second person and with shooting into an occupied vehicle.
In an unrelated case, Jefferson is charged with attempted murder and two counts of shooting into an occupied home. That incident took place on June 29, records show, and left a man wounded.
Jefferson was booked into the Jefferson County Jail on July 1 in connection with the June 29 shooting and remains held without bond.
