Teen charged in fatal shooting denied bond

A teenager accused of fatally shooting 47-year-old Roderick Tolbert was denied bond Friday.

Keon Deshez Leverett, 19, of the 200 block of Hale Street, was charged with murder, armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

He allegedly shot the victim on Oct. 9 during a drug deal, according to Assistant District Attorney Natalie Spires.

Leverett was seen running from the scene with a bag that contained 5 pounds of marijuana that authorities said Tolbert had planned to sell to him. The shooting happened in the 300 block of Sterling Street outside the victim's father's house.
