Reverend Shaun Harrison was arrested after he shot a high school student in the back of the head after they had a dispute over selling marijuana.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, Pat Robertson is imploring marijuana smokers to drop the habit since weed allegedly makes you a “slave to a vegetable.”
Based upon police reports, the reverend Shaun O. Harrison was living a double life since, from all outward appearances, he was a perfectly outstanding member of society. Police say the Boston English High School dean is accused of running a secret drug ring despite being an associate minister at Charles Street African Methodist Episcopal Church. The high school leader even ran for a Boston City Council seat in 2009 and was the former head of Operation: Project GO, a youth outreach program intended at keeping local kids out of gangs. He was also ran substance abuse and anger management programs at the Jamaica Plain high school.
Police claim Shaun Harrison lured in an unidentified 17-year-old student with the promise of easy girls and marijuana. The student had allegedly been selling weed for Harrison for months when they had a dispute. The reverend is claimed to have shot the teen “execution style” in the back of the head during a meeting on a street in Roxbury. Fortunately, the shooting victim was transported to Boston Medical Center and is expected to survive his gunshot wounds.
As details have come out, the case has only deepened. According to the Boston Herald, Harrison “allegedly has a mural of Latin Kings members in his home and shared a matching tattoo with two other men arraigned in connection with the shooting.” Multiple young men, with ages ranging from 19-years-old to age 24, have also been arraigned in connection with the execution-style shooting. A neighbor interviewed by police claims that he had alerted the authorities many times about the constant drug activity coming from Harrison’s apartment.
Boston Public Schools Superintendent John McDonough says the Reverend Shaun Harrison has been fired due to the police investigation.
“Nothing is more important than the safety and well-being of our students,” McDonough wrote. “English High School is filled with committed and caring educators who go above and beyond for their students every day. The school community is strong and its students and teachers have my unwavering support… The employee in question is being terminated immediately.”
On Thursday, Harrison was charged with “armed assault with intent to murder, aggravated assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm, discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling, and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony.” The judge in the case has ordered the former high school leader to be held on a $250,000 bond and the pretrial hearing will take place on April 6, 2015.
