Bond denied for teen accused of shooting employee during robbery

Bond was denied Friday for a 15-year-old accused of being the gunman in the holdup of a fast-food restaurant in which an employee was shot.

Deandre M. Scott faces a charge of armed robbery as an adult in Richmond County Superior Court. The crime is punishable by a minimum 10-year prison sentence.

Assistant District Attorney Natalie Paine said Friday that just before 8 p.m. Feb. 9, two men with shirts covering their faces robbed a Kentucky Fried Chicken. When an employee said the cash register was locked and couldn’t be opened, one of the robbers shot him in the left knee.

Frederick J. Bolden, 23, is also charged in the robbery. He is being held without bond.
