Morrison said there was “probable cause” for investigators to take out an arrest warrant for Colbert.
“Jalyn Colbert was known to the victim and also (a) visitor at the incident location,” she said.
Channel 2 Action News reported Monday that the teens were best friends and that the shooting was accidental. Police have not confirmed those details.
Colbert turned himself in at the sheriff’s office Sunday. He is being held in the Newton County Jail on charges of murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and theft by taking.
