Man awaiting trial for 2016 murder booked into Metro Jail for 2nd time this year

Mobile County

UPDATE (6/7/2020 4:08 p.m.) — Mobile Police say 20-year-old Trenteon King was arrested Friday, July 3rd while out on bond for murder and robbery.

MPD says around 10:30 a.m., police responded to Bay Oaks Apartments for a shooting.

The victims on scene told police they were driving near Michigan Street and Duval Street when a vehicle followed them and a subject stood up through the sunroof and began shooting toward the vehicle.

The vehicle was struck several times and one of the passengers was struck by a bullet in the leg. He was transported to the hospital.

The suspect, Trenteon King was later located and arrested

UPDATE: (6/7/2020) A bond hearing was held today and bond was set at $52,000 according to DA Ashley Rich over the state’s objection.

Even if he can make bond, officials say he will be held until a bond revocation hearing.

Rich said the state argues, given his prior charges, King is a potential danger to the community and should stay behind bars.

Rich said a motion to revoke King’s bond in January was denied because the victim in the recent robbery case recanted his statement.

The DA said a grand jury still indicted King on the charge and a bond was set in that case which he met.
