18-year-old Otha Brown has been denied bond in the murder of 12-year-old Adrian McDougles.

Brown and two other individuals were arrested for the crime in May and June of this year.

Hinds County Circuit Court Judge Johnnie McDaniels denied the bond in a preliminary hearing.

The killing happened on Ventura Drive in Jackson.

The victims (Adrian and his brother, Onterrio McDougles) were walking around 1 p.m. on Thursday, May 26, when several people pulled up beside them in a black Toyota Avalon and opened fire, police say.

Adrain passed away from his wounds, but Onterrio survived the shooting.

Brown is also facing three felony counts, including murder, armed carjacking, and being a convicted felon in possession of a concealed weapon.

He also is being charged with violating his probation on a previous crime.
