A 17-year-old faces a charge of homicide after authorities say he shot and killed his stepfather April 2.

Adrian Nicholas Kramer, of Reynoldsburg, is accused of shooting his stepfather, 32-year-old Aaron Cusick, during an argument outside their home in the 1200 block of Hanson Street at 11:12 p.m. Monday.

“The evidence clearly indicates Adrian was the shooter,” said Jenny Gonzalez, assistant prosecuting attorney and chief of the juvenile division for the Licking County prosecutor’s office. Kramer was arrested after police collected witness statements.

She said a verbal argument started inside the home and escalated to a shooting outside. Kramer, Cusick, Kramer’s mother Crystal, and another juvenile were home at the time the incident occurred, Gonzalez said. No one else in the household reported any injuries requiring treatment.
