Jermaine Munn Jr. arrested for April murder of Nathan Hall in South Bend

Jermaine Munn Jr., 16, was charged today in connection with a murder from April in South Bend. He is being charged with felony murder and Class B felony robbery. Munn is being held without bond and remains in custody at the St. Joseph County Jail. He will be arraigned tomorrow at 1:00 p.m.

Nathan Hall, an 18 year-old from North Adams Street, was shot and killed while riding his bike in the early morning hours of April 16. Hall suffered a gunshot wound to the head and later died at a local hospital.

An affidavit from the St. Joseph County prosecutor’s office details the encounter. Brian Cook, a detective with the St. Joseph County Metro-Homicide Unit, interviewed Jawuan Taylor concerning Hall’s death. Taylor claims that Shane Williams and Jermaine Munn Jr. discussed robbing Hall on April 15 because Hall possessed “a lot of marijuana.”

The victim and his alleged assailants communicated through Facebook to set up a meeting location for a marijuana deal. The affidavit alleges that Jermaine Munn Jr. pulled the trigger. Facebook messages recovered by investigators showed Hall and Williams discussing a meeting. The last message received between Hall and Williams occurred slightly before Hall’s death.

Clay High School’s principal, Mansour Eid, said that Hall was "a senior with a jovial personality loved by all... Nate's good heart earned him the respect of peers and teachers alike. He will be dearly missed."

Police also arrested Shane Williams, 18, on felony murder and robbery charges back on June 5. Williams’ hearing is scheduled for later this month.
