Miami Teen Charged as Adult: Details of Double Shooting Case Unveiled

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Law enforcement authorities placed a Miami teenager under custody at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on Thursday. This move followed the detainment of his mother at the same adult facility.

These actions are in connection to a double shooting incident that occurred on July 18 in a northwest Miami-Dade park.

The accused shooter, 15-year-old Christian Nealy from Liberty City, was charged as an adult by prosecutors on Thursday. Nealy is facing various charges, including three counts of attempted murder and evidence tampering.

These charges are also being brought against his mother, Isesha Johnson, who allegedly provided Nealy with the weapon used in the attempted murder and tried to conceal the crime.

According to the Miami-Dade police, on the night of July 18, just after 10:30 p.m., Nealy shot two individuals and narrowly missed a third person at Olinda Park. This park is situated at 2101 NW 51st St. in the Brownsville area of the county.

The police reported that one victim sustained a gunshot wound to their right arm, and another to their right thigh. The third individual narrowly escaped being hit and had a bullet pass through a piece of clothing on their head. Fortunately, both wounded victims survived.

Based on an arrest report, Johnson, aged 41, allegedly witnessed her son burying the firearm after he returned home following the shooting. Nealy was apprehended by officers on August 3rd. Subsequently, he informed them that his mother had provided him with the gun. Johnson was then arrested, as mentioned in the arrest report.

Both the mother and son are being held in custody at TGK without the possibility of posting bail since Friday afternoon. In addition to the previously mentioned charges, Nealy is also accused of using a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Johnson, on the other hand, is facing charges of being an accessory after the fact, having a minor in possession of a guardian-approved firearm, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
