VIDEO: Bond denied for teens charged in Mardi Gras shooting that injured two innocent bystanders

UPDATE 9:36 A.M.

Isiah Carl and Tykendrick Barnett both appeared in court in Mobile on Tuesday. The judge denied bond for both teenagers. Both are charged with two counts of assault, discharging a firearm and possessing a firearm. Carl is also charged with receiving stolen property because police say he had a stolen gun.

At the time of the shooting, Barnett was on probation for a matter in the juvenile court system. He was also arrested on a burglary charge in January. He is also charged as an adult in that case.

The two people injured in Saturday’s shooting were innocent bystanders. 

Prosecutors asked for no bond, saying the shooting was in such a public place and the suspects are a danger to the community.
