COURT RECORDS: 16-year-old Del Sol Academy student accused of killing 75-year-old apartment security guard

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — 16-year-old Anthony Okelberry is accused of killing 75-year-old Hursey Addison, an unarmed security guard at a Las Vegas valley apartment complex.

8 News Now obtained the nearly 90-page grand jury transcript, which details the circumstances surrounding the deadly shooting in April.

According to the grand jury transcript, the Clark County coroner’s office ruled Addison’s cause of death as a gunshot wound to the head with the manner of death listed as a homicide. Evidence photos show an apparent bullet hole in Addison’s car window and a ransacked glove box.

Racist, anti-gay student flyers challenge Wyoming district

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) – The leaflets distributed by students at a junior high school told pre-teens to “Join the KKK” and that “It’s not OK to be gay.”
