DA: Accused middle school shooter is admitted gang member


According to court documents, accused Discovery Middle School shooter, Hammad Memon, was a member of a gang.

The Madison County district attorney plans to submit evidence during Memon's trial that the teen was a member of the Crips.

They also plan to submit evidence that Memon stole the gun he used to shoot classmate Todd Brown, and that he attempted to flee the country to avoid prosecution.

Memon is set to go on trial on June 17th.

Memon is accused of shooting and killing 14-year-old Todd Brown during a class change at Discovery Middle School in 2010. His trial was originally scheduled to happen last summer, but was delayed.

Hammad Memon is in the Huntsville-Madison County Metro Jail without bond. A judge revoked his bond after Hammad and his mother were apprehended in Texas in April 2012. Investigators said they were planning to leave the country.

Memon's father is also accused of helping him flee. Memon's parents are charged with hindering prosecution.
