Bond reduction denied for suspect in fatal gun shop shooting

Posted: Updated:

One of four men accused of fatally shooting a local gun shop owner will remain behind bars after a judge denied his request for a bond reduction. 

Tuesday morning, 20-year-old Truanser Hughes appeared before a judge requesting his $1,000,000 be reduced. 

Hughes mother who was also in court told the judge she could not afford to bond her son out of jail. 

She pleaded to the judge to reduce his bond to $50,000, and if so she would make sure he appeared at all of his court hearings. 

Unfortunately for Hughes, Judge Jack Pulcher denied his request. 

Hughes is accused in the fatal shooting of Shooter's Depot owner George Koumbis in a robbery homicide back in September of 2016. 

An employee was also critically injured during the robbery.
