(BAY MINETTE, Ala.) - Three teens are now charged with murder in the shooting death of Summer Moody. Scott Byrd, 18, Dillon Tyree, 18, and Daniel Parnell, 18, are all in jail.
Investigators say the teens were armed and breaking into fish camps on Gravine Island when Moody was shot in the back of the head by a warning shot fired by a camper on the island.
District Attorney Hallie Dixon says a grand jury found enough evidence to charge the teens with felony murder. Dixon says that charge holds people accountable if they're participating in dangerous felonies, like armed burglar, and someone is killed.
"But for the actions of these young men that night Summer Moody would still be with us, would still be alive," said Dixon. "There is absolutely no way that a person could have ever anticipated that firing off into this pitch black, in the middle of no where swamp that somebody could have been there."
"They're outraged and upset," said Robert Stankoski.
Stankoski represents the Moody family. He says the family doesn't agree with charging the teens with felony murder. They place blame solely on the camper who fired the shot.
"We can't make the sheriff's department or the ATF or the Baldwin County District Attorney's Office prosecute, they only had one alternative left, which was file a civil lawsuit, so right now, that's what the family is focused on," said Stankoski.
"If it was my daughter, I would feel much the same way. The law is clear though as far as who is accountable and who is responsible," said Dixon.
Even though, the campers who approach the teens that night were both convicted felons and not allowed to have guns.
"The firearms charge, under state law, our prohibition, legal prohibition for felons involves hand guns. These were long guns. They are not prohibited, under state law from having long guns," said Dixon.
No comment from the families of any of the teens charged. Local 15 News was asked to leave the properties of each home Wednesday. All three teens are due in court Friday for a bond hearing.
