US Marshals arrest three men, 19, 20, and 21, over death of boy, 17, who was beaten to death in car park of LeBron James-founded high school in Ohio

Ethan Liming, 17, was beaten to death on June 2 outside of a Ohio high school. Deshawn Stafford, 20, Tyler Stafford, 19, and Donovon Jones, 21, were arrested over the weekend in their Akron homes. The teen’s death stemmed from an altercation that happened on the basketball court at a LeBron James-founded I Promise high school in Akron.

The U.S. Marshals Service arrested three men accused of fatally beating a 17-year-old boy outside the high school founded by LeBron James during a fight provoked by a toy gun.

The Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force tracked down Deshawn Stafford, 20, Tyler Stafford, 19, and Donovon Jones, 21, and arrested them on an Akron Police Department Warrant for the death of high school football player Ethan Liming on the basketball courts near the I Promise School on June 2.

Liming and a group of friends were joy-riding in a car and apparently provoked the fight with the three men by shooting at them with a plastic Splatrball Water Bead Blaster.

Deshawn and Tyler Stafford, who live together in the 500 block of North Howard Street in Akron, Ohio, were arrested by the Marshals and police. Jones was captured separately in the 200 block of Crosby Street, also in Akron.
