Suspects in shooting death of 2-year-old could get judge assignment today

2-year-old killed in Avondale (

The judge is waiting on paperwork to determine which circuit judge gets the case.


The 4 men charged in connection to the shooting death of a 2-year-old boy are scheduled to appear in court today.

Birmingham police say Ron'Narius Austin was shot and killed Saturday in Avondale.

It will be the first time we see in person the suspects police say opened fire on a parked car, killing a 2-year-old boy in a popular part of the city.

D'Marco Harris, Joshua Carpenter, and a 3rd suspect will make their first appearance in court today. All 4 suspects are facing a capital murder charge and the possibility of the death penalty if convicted.

ABC 33/40 has chosen not to name the other suspects because they could apply for youthful offender status, sealing their case from the public.
