Trial Date Set for Dothan Teenager

The Dothan teenager arrested after a police standoff at a Dothan medical clinic was back in court Tuesday.

19-year-old Jason Murphy sat quietly during his arraignment hearing.

On February 5th, Murphy walked into PrimeCare on Westgate Parkway, reportedly opened fire with a rifle, and held authorities at-bay for almost 3-hours.

A Houston County grand jury indicted Murphy on 5-counts of attempted murder.

Judge Lawson Little refused to grant him bond, so he's been behind bars since the incident.

Judge Little set Murphy’s trial date for May 7th.
