HOLLANDALE — A 17-year-old who shot and killed a 13-year-old in Hollandale has been given a $1 million bond after being charged with first degree murder.
The 17-year-old, of Metcalfe, has been identified as Teneil Redmond and has been formally charged as an adult by the Hollandale Police Department for the shooting death of a 13-year-old male, of Hollandale. He is in custody at the Al Rankins Correctional Facility.
The shooting took place at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, in the 700 block of Sherman Street. Officers with the Hollandale Police Department were dispatched after receiving a call in reference to reports of shots fired and a child hanging out of a car.
On scene, officers discovered the body of the 13-year-old, who had sustained a gunshot wound to the head.
According to HPD Chief Marcus Davis, Redmond fled the scene while both his and the 13-year-old’s parents and others were inside the house enjoying a family and friends gathering.
“But those two had been left outside and whatever transpired between them led the 17-year-old male to allegedly shoot the 13-year-old in the head with a 9mm long rifle,” Davis previously said.
According to Davis, Redmond found the weapon inside his father’s vehicle. He was arrested by officers with the Washington County Sheriff’s Department in Mallard Cove Apartments after fleeing the scene.
The 13-year-old was transported to Delta Health System - The Medical Center by Pafford EMS and later pronounced deceased by the Washington County Coroner’s Office.
