Talladega Police Department Capt. John McCoy said he could no go into any specifics other than saying that the suspect would have an appearance in court later this week, but he could not say for certain where or when.
The young man will likely be charged with the murder of the store’s owner, Earnest Jenkins, 75. The suspect was also hit with a gunshot during what was described as a robbery at the time.
The Talladega County Judicial Building and the various offices therein were closed Monday for Columbus Day.
