Eric Velazquez, Brayan Omar Cruz and London Clements, all 17, appeared before Magistrate Court Judge Elizabeth Reisman Tuesday, July 9, on a video call between the courthouse and the jail.

All three were being held at the Hall County Jail without bond on a charge of felony murder, according to the online jail database.

Attorneys Jason Wilson, Dan Sammons and Lee Parks did not return a request for comment from The Times concerning Velazquez, Clements and Cruz, respectively.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Derreck Booth said Wednesday, July 10, the warrant was served for Hector Garcia-Solis, the 17-year-old suspected by authorities to be the triggerman. Garcia-Solis was listed as having been booked into the jail, but Booth said that was not the case.

“He’s not at the Hall County Jail but remains under the care of medical professionals,” Booth wrote.

It was unclear whether Garcia-Solis was still in the hospital or had been transferred to another facility. A request for clarification was unreturned by press time.
