Teenage pair charged with murdering Vallejo high school student

Max Rusk, a sophomore at the Bethel high school, was found shot to death on a trail near the campus.


VALLEJO (KRON) — Two teens were arraigned Tuesday afternoon in connection with the shooting death of a Jesse Bethel High School student last Thursday.

17-year old Kenneth “Max” Rusk was killed Thursday while at a skate park in the 1800 block of Ascot Parkway in Vallejo. That is fairly close to his high school.

Zachery Kroll, 19, of Vallejo, and Elisha Marcel White Jr. were arrested just a day after Rusk was killed, charged with his murder. Kroll has also been charged with a gun enhancement.

Kroll and another boy, Austin Leandro Lonzanida, are also charged with committing a robbery on Wednesday, a day before the shooting, Solano County District Attorney Krishna Abrams said.
