North Carolina Teen Charged with Shooting Officer Held on $1 Million Bond

A judge has set a $1 million bond for the teen who police said shot a Cornelius, N.C., officer Saturday.

Grayson Ferrell, 16, is facing multiple charges including attempted first-degree murder.

Ferrell has a history of violence and drugs and the teen’s mother told police in December her son broke her ribs and that she wonders if her son was going to kill her, WSOC TV reports.

A series of disturbing and profane comments on Ferrell’s Facebook page in the last month make it look more like an ambush. He cursed and even alluded to killing police. He'd posted the video of the officer in North Charleston shooting an unarmed man and then posted:

“I'd rather hear every day about an unarmed cop getting shot by a criminal than armed cops killing innocent people.”

Police said 16-year-old Greyson Ferrell was holding a gun and wearing a bulletproof vest when officers approached his home on Coachman's Trace.

Sounds like a real nice kid, the kind you might hope your daughter would date. No mention of the condition of the officer but hopefully he or she will fully recover. This punk should be tried as an adult and if convicted, given the maximum penalty. We don't need his kind running around loose.

You need to hook this kid up to the haladol drip and never let him up to try to kill another officer,as we all know he will try to do if you let him out.

Somehow the look on his face reminds me of Charles Manson. Wonder if he's any relation? God speed to the officer for a speedy recovery.

His mommy and daddy who called the police on the day it happened were the ones who bailed him out. Great Parenting
