ATLANTA — The teen suspect charged with murder in the death of an 8-year-old has been denied bond.
A judge made the ruling during a Thursday court appearance for Julian Conley.
Police said around 9:30 p.m. on July 4, the girl was in a car with her mother and someone else when they took the University Avenue exit off the interstate and tried to turn around in a parking lot of a business off Pryor Street - just about a block away from the Wendy's restaurant where Rayshard Brooks was shot and killed by police in June.
Police said a group of armed people confronted the car and shot at it, hitting the girl. She later died at the hospital.
Police released surveillance video and images of persons of interest in the case and later named Conley as a suspect, securing warrants for his arrest.
Conley's next court appearance will be decided at a later date due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Turner was laid to rest Wednesday.
