WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – Charges have been filed against 23 people in Warren for taking part in a large gathering earlier this month, which violated Ohio’s stay at home order.

More than 100 people gathered April 11 for a vigil on Kenmore Avenue to remember Darryl Van Jackson, who was murdered.

Police were called to the area on reports about the large crowd and that they were yelling and fighting.

It took some time, but officers were able to get the group to disperse.

The event drew the ire of Mayor Doug Franklin who said that the actions of the crowd put his officers and others at risk and promised that charges would follow.

Investigators used videos and photos on social media and from the officers’ cameras to identify the suspects.

Those charged include:

  • Juchard Duncan
  • Takya Darshay Williams
  • Tawana Price
  • Brittany M. Washington
  • Shon L. Thompson
  • Robert J. Johnson
  • Deana Renee Johnson
  • Shawn L Price
  • Jaymes E. Gaddis
  • Casey J Fessler
  • Ashley Frank
  • Rachel A. Moore
  • Ashley J. Richards

  • James D. Hall, Sr.
  • Tageana Lofton
  • Takeara Dukes
  • Alexis M. Dean
  • Kara Lightner
  • Brandon Haun
