Phoenix — An Arizona prosecutor said a grand jury has returned an indictment charging a white man with first-degree murder in the fatal stabbing of a black youth for playing rap music he said he thought was threatening. Michael Adams faces charges in the July 4 killing of 17-year-old Elijah Al-Amin at a convenience store in suburban Phoenix, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery said Thursday.
According to CBS affiliate KPHO, Elijah Al-Amin had stopped by a Circle K in Peoria in the early hours of July 4. Police said the teen was standing by a soda machine when Adams stabbed him in the back and slit his throat. Adams reportedly told police he attacked the boy because Elijah was listening to rap music.
