Sheriff Robert Pickell told People magazine that the teens had thrown a shopping cart, chair and tire iron off other overpasses in the metro Flint area.

“There’s a continuing behavior,” Pickell said.

“These [aren’t] pranks. They’re deliberate, intentional actions that knowingly could hurt people,” he said.

Kyle Anger, who turns 18 this week, Alexzander Miller, 15, Trevor Gray, 15, Mikadyn Payne, 16, and Mark Sekelsky, 16, are charged with second-degree murder in the death of 32-year-old Kenneth White.

Pickell said the teens threw more than a dozen rocks off an overpass over Interstate 75 on Oct. 18, damaging multiple vehicles before the rock that killed White was thrown, People reported.

Police have not revealed which teen threw the rock that killed White.
