A Rome teenager was stabbed to death late Monday night.  Tymurius Elkins, age 16, was pronounced dead just after midnight.  Ricky Ricardo Cruz, age 20, and Jonathon Tyler Carson, age 17, have been charged in the crime.  Cruz has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and fighting in a public place following accusations that he stabbed Elkins in an altercation in the parking lot of a Shorter Avenue business.  Carson has been charged with involuntary manslaugher (for being party to the crime) and fighting in a public place.  Cruz reportedly was perceived to have flashed an obscene gesture and was flagged down by Elkins, Carson and another companion, 17 year old Will West. That turned into an altercation that ultimately led to the stabbing death of Elkins.  West was also stabbed and is in recovery at Floyd Medical Center.  An investigation into the incident continues.
