A Grayson County grand jury Tuesday indicted two teens for the shooting death a Denison child and the shooting of another.
Ryan Clay, 18, of Sherman, and Sabrina Nino, 17, of Sherman, were each indicted on multiple charges Tuesday including capital murder of a child under the age of 10, murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, deadly conduct discharging a firearm, injury to a child and abandoning a child criminal neglect. The indictments are formal charges and are not an indication of guilt.
The charges stem from the November 19, shooting of Kason Powell, 5, and ZaQuavian Fisher, 11, that reports link to a drug deal gone bad.
The most recent reports show that a third person, Antonio “Chapo” Prado, 17, is still being sought in the case on charges of capital murder of a child under 10 years of age.
The shooting happened outside a home in the 1700 block of West Elm Street. Powell was taken to Texoma Medical Center where he later died and Fisher was flow by air ambulance to a Dallas-area hospital where he was treated.
Affidavits in the case show that Fisher’s 17-year-old brother told investigators that he and some friends had arranged, on the night of the shooting, to purchase a quarter ounce of marijuana from Nino in the parking lot of a Sherman store. Fisher’s 17-year-old brother Nino approached their car with the drugs and the girl driving the friends’ car began driving off with Nino holding onto the var. That driver, Fisher’s 17-year-old brother said, then got out of the car and struck Nino.
Nino told police that the drugs she had came from Prado and she went to his house after the incident at the store. She then got in a car with Clay and Prado and drove back to the house in the 1700 block of West Elem to fight with the driver of the vehicle and try to get her money or the drugs back.
She said she got out of the car to try to do those things and as she walked back to the car, she said, someone began to fire rounds into the house. She got back into the car and Clay drove the car back to Prado’s house.
She later told police that Clay and Prado had opened fire on the house. An affidavit there were multiple holes in the front of the residence” and there were also “multiple used shell casings found in the street in front of the house from a 9 mm firearm.” Nino told investigators that she had driven the group to the home and noticed a handgun in Clay’s waistband, before their departure.
