Hoopfest shooting suspect charged with escape

A teenager arrested in connection with a shooting at Hoopfest last month was prohibited from leaving his home unless he was at school or with his parents due to a prior assault charge.

But Adam Doe, 19, wasn’t with his parents at Hoopfest, causing prosecutors to give Doe his third felony charge related to the June 26 shooting. They filed a second-degree escape charge this week.

Doe appeared on the escape charge in Superior Court on Thursday via video from the jail, where he’s held on $200,000 bail for assault and gun charges, and $50,000 bail for riot and assault charges related to an October 2009 stabbing.

Judge Sam Cozza imposed an additional $7,500 bond for the escape charge.

If Doe posts bond, he’ll be on home detention and will be allowed to leave his home between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. if accompanied by his mother or father.

Doe is accused of assaulting a police officer who tried to detain him while in possession of the gun investigators believe Miguel C. Garcia, 19, fired at least three times at Hoopfest. The bullets struck three bystanders. Garcia remains jailed on $750,000 bond.
