Shooting suspect’s mom: He can’t stay here

When a judge ruled that a 19-year-old man arrested after a shooting at Hoopfest Saturday deserved a substantial bond, she noted that his mother has said he isn't welcome at home.

"She stated she does not want the defendant to stay with her if he is released," Judge Debra Hayes said Tuesday before approving a $200,000 bond for Adam Doe.

Hayes called Doe and alleged Hoopfest gunman Miguel C. Garcia, 19, a “tremendous risk to this community and many innocent and defenseless bystanders.”

Both men appeared in court Tuesday via video from the jail. Garcia was given a $750,000 bond for three counts of first-degree assault; Doe is charged with unlawful posession of a firearm and third-dgree assault.

The assault charge stems from Doe allegedly reaching for gun when approached by police, which led to an officer drawing his gun. But the officer didn't fire because of the large crowd, leading to what he described in court documents as a violent struggle with the teenager.

Doe is due back in court today for violating his release conditions on assault and riot charges connected to a stabbing in October.
