Phoenix resident Antwone Coleman, 28, was booked into jail this week on grand jury charges of first-degree murder and aggravated assault, though we're still trying to find out details of his alleged crime.

The Maricopa Superior Court and County Attorney's Office had no details for us yet, but a bit of Googling came up with a recent article from Channel 15 (KNXV-TV) that contained potentially related info.

In May, police arrested 17-year-old Arkeem Coleman in a drive-by shooting that left an innocent bystander dead. Gilbert Leon, 54, caught a bullet through the back windshield of his 2002 Chevrolet Impala and later died.

A commenter on the Channel 15 article who seems to know a thing or two about the family states that Antwone Coleman was involved in a "drive-by shooting."

We'll update this one as we learn more.
