On Jan. 21, 16-year-old Kuantrae “Trae” Massey was allegedly shot and killed by 17-year-old Lar’Ron Carroll, a confirmed Normal Community High School student who now faces multiple charges.
Dave White, Bloomington Police Department public affairs officer, said Carroll will be held at the McLean County Jail for involuntary manslaughter, possession of a stolen firearm, obstruction of justice, destroying the evidence and for providing false information.
According to The Pantagraph, Massey was shot in the living room of an apartment on Ginger Trail in the Danbury Court Apartments. The weapon was a .357 Magnum from a nearby apartment. Police said they later found the gun in a tree line near the apartment complex.
Carroll appeared before a judge on Thursday afternoon at McLean County Court.
Jason Chambers, McLean County states attorney, sent out a press release with additional information after the court hearing.
“Lar’Ron Carroll of Normal appeared in Bond Court, where a McLean County judge set bond at $500,000, with 10 percent to apply, for the charges of aggravated battery with a firearm, involuntary manslaughter, possession of a stolen firearm and unlawful use of a firearm,” Chambers said in the press release.
“Also arrested was a 16-year-old male juvenile on charges of obstruction of justice, as it is related to this case,” White said. “The juvenile was released to his parent.”
The investigation still continues. For more information, contact the Bloomington Police Department at
