TUSKEGEE, AL (WSFA) - A Macon County Deputy District Attorney says the suspect in last month's shooting incident that left five juveniles injured has turned himself in.
Chief Deputy DA Damon Lewis says the male juvenile turned himself in to the DA's office this morning.
The juvenile is suspected of shooting five other juveniles on Sunday, September 23 at the Capricorn Apartments on Hwy. 80 West.
The suspect's attorney, Chris Ford, says his client, 16-year-old Davorious Ferrell will be charged as an adult.
"We plan to move forward with this as a self-defense case," said Ford. "We are happy he was able to turn himself in today without any harm to him."
Ford added that Ferrell should have his first court appearance some time next week.
