Teen Charged in Alberta Slaying Will be Tried as an Adult

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Police said a 15-year-old boy accused in the fatal shooting of another teen at an Alberta convenience store will be tried as an adult on a murder charge.

Myron Dontrell Clancy was initially held at the Tuscaloosa County Juvenile Detention Center, but has been moved into the Tuscaloosa County Jail on the murder charge with bail set at $250,000.

Clancy is accused of fatally shooting 17-year-old Jonathan Desean Finney multiple times in the parking lot of the Short Stop Tobacco and Deli in Alberta on March 8th.

Clancy was arrested about an hour later. The next day, two teenagers were injured by gunfire in what is believed to have been retaliation for Finney's death.

21-year-old Charles Hughes and two juvenile males have been arrested in that shooting.

Police said the young men involved knew each other and that a long-simmering dispute over a car led to the shootings.
