HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – A judge granted bond for the teenager accused of shooting a girl at a West End house party earlier this month in Henrico. Marcus Moore, 19, was granted a $20,000 bond and ordered to be monitored electronically
Moore, who turned himself in to police last week, is charged Aggravated Malicious Wounding and Use of a Firearm In Commission Of Felony.
Moore is accused of shooting a girl in the head at a house party in Henrico on Sept. 1. The girl survived the shooting. Due to the age of the victim, CBS 6 is waiting for police or her family to release her name before we publish the name given to us by friends and witnesses.
A group of Moore’s friends and family members wore t-shirts and prayed outside of court before Monday’s scheduled bond hearing. That hearing was continued to Tuesday morning.
“This is a case of being at the wrong place at the wrong time,” said Moore’s mother Germaine Raines on Monday. “Marcus is not a criminal. He’s not that type of a kid. You’ve got to pick and choose your friends. You’ve got to know your surroundings.”
