Bond was denied Thursday morning for 30-year-old Larry Grison Jr who has been charged in the shooting death of Calvin Kentrell Banks.


According to Chief Assistant District Attorney Layla Zon, Judge Samuel Ozburn found that Grison posed a flight risk since he had “no significant ties to the community.”


Originally from Lake Charles, Louisiana, Grison was picked up at the Dollar General Store less than a mile from the home on Appia Way where Banks was killed. There was a large amount of marijuana reportedly found in the same area as Grison when he was arrested. Though not initially charged, he has since been charged with murder, aggravated assault, armed robbery and cruelty to children in the second degree.
