A teenager formerly of Neligh tested positive for drugs today, which delayed his sentencing in a shooting incident.
Judge James Kube postponed the sentencing of Marquis Granville, 18, because he believed Granville to still be under the influence of marijuana. Granville is formerly of Neligh and currently of Norfolk.
Granville faces charges of terroristic threats and the use of a firearm to commit a felony. He plead guilty to the first count of terroristic threats, a class 3A felony, in exchange for the weapons charge being dropped. Granville, 21-year old Zach Seimer, and 21-year old Tremaine Monroe were charged in connection with a shooting at a house party in January.
Capt. Mike Bauer of the Norfolk Police Division said the investigation revealed that some attendees were refusing to leave the party. At that point, Bauer says a 12 gauge shotgun was brought to the house and used to threaten the guests that refused to leave. Bauer says at one point the gun was dropped and discharged, shooting the victim in the foot.
Bauer says Seimer, Monroe and Granville were all involved in bringing the gun to the house and threatening the victim.
Since Granville broke the conditions of his bond he was remanded to the custody of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office. He will be back in Madison County Court on Monday for his 11 a.m. sentencing.
