A $35,000 bond was set Wednesday for a Pine Bluff woman accused of being involved in a shooting incident in White Hall Saturday.
Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge India Rogers, 18, with aggravated assault and terroristic act.
Reading from an affidavit from White Hall officer Clayton Cantrell, Deputy Prosecutor Mircha King said on Saturday at 11:22 p.m., offices were sent to the Big Red Travel Plaza at 8110 Sheridan Road in response to a report of multiple shots being fired from several individuals.
When they arrived they found a white Nissan with temporary tags and a black female later identified as Rogers sitting on the ground. She was told to get her identification and not to heave the area.
Cantrell reported that police looked at security video from the business.
The white Nissan was located at an apartment complex in White Hall and when Rogers was questioned, she said she was with the two unidentified black males who had gone into the store to buy items while four black males had arrived in a vehicle and fired shots at them. She then asked for an attorney and the interview ended.
An attorney for Rogers told Kearney that she had no prior convictions or criminal history, had just graduated high school and was working and asked that she be released on her own recognizance. Still, Kearney said he thought the bond requested by prosecutors was reasonable. He also told the attorney that if he wanted to contest the bond, he could file a petition and a hearing would be set in 48 hours.
