A Palos Verdes High School senior from an affluent family that enjoyed trips to Mexican resorts and played board games together has been charged with murder for allegedly driving the getaway auto after a fatal gang-related shooting of a 21-year-old man in South Los Angeles, police said Thursday.

Cameron Terrell, 18, was arrested with two juveniles in an alleged daytime gang shooting on October 1 in South Los Angeles that left 21-year-old Justin Holmes dead. Court records show he is charged with one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and allegations that he committed the act for the benefit of his gang.

Terrell reportedly remains in school even though he faces a murder charge.

The principal and superintendent have not yet replied to a request for comment from KTLA.

The charges against Terrell stem from the October 1 shooting of Holmes at about 11:25 a.m.as he and two men walked west on 78th Street near Western Avenue.

Holmes, was walking with two friends when they were confronted by two armed suspects who asked where they were from.

Investigators do not believe Terrell fired the fatal shot but he has been charged with murder for his role in the crime.

According to police, the investigation led to Terrell as the suspected driver.

Terrell is blamed for driving the vehicle conveying two presumes who had been captured on doubt of murder, as per The Daily Breeze.

"At worst, most law enforcement officers would say that allowing an 18-year-old gang member suspected of a felony to attend a high school presents a clear and present danger to other students". The suspects, whose names have not been released, are in custody in a juvenile facility.

Terrell's father is Donald Wayne Terrell, the president of New & Improved Media, a media consulting firm in El Segundo.

His mother's Facebook page shows she and her husband offered their son an affluent lifestyle. They shoot up people's homes.

Emails and phone calls to Terrell's parents were not returned.

"We thought it best all the way around, including for Cameron", Austin said.

Two Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District officials confirmed to KTLA that Terrell attended the high school, and was in class as recently as last week.
