Teen accused in Walmart parking lot shooting awaiting decision on possible move to adult court


A 16-year-old high school junior will remain in the juvenile detention center awaiting a court hearing next month for allegedly shooting another teen in a robbery attempt in a Fairfield Twp. Walmart parking lot.

The boy was arrested on Jan. 23 at Colerain High School by Fairfield Twp. police three days after the incident at Walmart on Princeton Road. The teen is charged with aggravated robbery and felonious assault.

Because of the teen’s age and the level of charges, the case is a mandatory bind over to adult court if probable cause is found, Butler County Juvenile Court Judge Ronald Craft said Friday during a brief hearing.

Craft set the probable cause hearing for March 9 and ordered the teen remain in the Butler County Juvenile Detention Center.

On Jan. 20, the 17-year-old victim was shot while in the driver’s side of a car in the parking lot. The shot teen accelerated his vehicle and struck other vehicles and a shopping cart corral, according to police. The 17-year-old was treated and released from West Chester Hospital.

The vehicle used to drop off the accused teen and pick him up from Walmart was a red 2007 Toyota Camry stolen earlier that week from Cincinnati. The vehicle was recovered.
