MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Hammad Memon, the accused Discovery Middle School shooter, is back in Madison County.

Just after 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, police escorted Memon into the Madison County Jail.

They arrived in a black, unmarked, Crown Victoria police car. Kevin Turner, chief investigator with the District Attorney's Office, and Sergeant Drew Westrope left Tuesday to pick up the teen in Dallas, Texas.

Hammad and his parents were arrested after it was discovered he applied for a Pakistani passport. The assistant D.A. said the parents planned on getting their son out of the country to avoid his murder trial scheduled for June 18th.

Police found that Hammad and his mother were not in Madison County, so they traced Safia's cell phone to Dallas County, Texas and had the pair arrested. 

Hammad is charged with fatally shooting fellow classmate 14-year-old Todd Brown at Discovery Middle School in 2010.

Hammad has a bond hearing Thursday at 11:30 a.m. in Judge Karen Hall's courtroom. 

Memon's attorney Bruce Garner said he may ask for a change in venue since this case has received so much attention in Alabama.

Hammad's mother will remain in Texas for another week. She is scheduled to return to North Alabama April 27.

Hammad's father, Dr. Iqbal Memon, was arrested at the family's home in Madison Friday night.

Both parents are charged with hindering prosecution.
