HIGH POINT, N.C. — A judge has ordered a man accused in a triple shooting that left a 17-year-old boy dead to be held in jail without bond.
Isaiah Rorie, 24, appeared in court for his first hearing after turning himself in to police.
Police arrested and charged Rorie with First Degree Murder in the death of Deanthony Little. He also faces charges for shooting two other men who were in the same car as Little.
The shooting happened on September 16 on Brentwood Street in High Point. Officers found Little in the roadway, shot in the head. He died at the hospital. Investigators say the two other victims, identified as 17-year-old Khasi Gladden and 20-year-old Kameron Turner, removed Little from the car and drove off.
Police also arrested and charged Khasi Gladden last week in connection to the shooting. They say Gladden was driving a stolen car at the time of the shooting. He also left Little's body in the road then walked off. He faces several charges connected to the shooting and other unrelated incidents. Gladden is being held under a $1 million bond.
Rorie’s family said he turned himself in to police because warrants were out for his arrest and not because he’s admitting guilt. His family also said he’s going to plead not guilty and that “everyone who knows him, knows he didn’t do this.” He did waive his right to an attorney and instead plans to hire his own. The judge said Rorie could face Capital Punishment or Life in Prison for First Degree Murder if convicted.
