Drive-by shooting suspect held on $1 million bond

(WMC-TV) - Rico Fleming, a man accused of gunning down a Memphis high school student on Christmas Day, is being held on $1 million bond in a Marshall Co., MS, jail.

The bond amount was handed down during his first appearance in a Mississippi court this afternoon. As he left the courtroom, Fleming told reporters he would be found innocent of the charges against him.

Fleming was captured earlier this week in St. Louis by the U.S. Marshall's Service and arrived in Marshall Co., MS, shortly after one o'clock in the morning today.

Derica Patterson, 16, was killed when Fleming, 16-year-old Christopher Collins and 31-year-old Corey Albright allegedly fired numerous gunshots at the car she was riding in.

All three have been charged with murder and numerous counts of drive-by shooting.
