Jun 27, 2017

   Montgomery police have now charged a juvenile male with reckless murder and assault in connection with a fatal shooting yesterday. In a press conference police revealed that a 9 year old boy was killed and a 16 year old was wounded in the incident that occurred at a home in the 17-hundred block of Coral Lane which is located near Norman Bridge Road. The 16 year old’s injuries were not life-threatening. Captain Regina Duckett says that reckless murder charges can be brought regardless of the intent. The juvenile was placed in the Montgomery County Youth Detention Facility. He is not being identified due to his age. A statement from the Montgomery School System indicates that because the shooting happened in a school neighborhood, counselors will be made available to students, parents or staff today and tomorrow at Seth Johnson Elementary from 10am to 2pm each day.
