Bail set at $250K for teen accused in security guard’s death

Local News

A Clark County judge set bail at $250,000 for the teen facing several charges in the shooting death of a 75-year-old security guard.

Del Sol High School student Anthony Okelberry, 16, is accused of killing 75-year-old Hursey Dale Addison on April 22 at an apartment complex on Mountain Vista Street near Russell Road. Okelberry, who appeared in court for the Wednesday morning hearing, is facing charges of murder, robbery with the use of a deadly weapon, burglary, obtaining a credit card without the cardholder’s consent and possession of a dangerous weapon on school property.

Okelberry was arrested at Del Sol High School on April 25. Police said he had a handgun with him at the time of his arrest.

Okelberry showed some emotion in court. He was shaking. Prosecutors said it was important to note the details of the crime.

“The allegations are that the 16-year-old defendant shot a 75-year-old man, who was an unarmed security guard at an apartment complex point blank in his car, then dragged his body out of the car. Robbed him of his wallet. Took a photo of the dead and sent it to a friend,” said prosecutor Brandon Albright.

The judge said Okelberry could be held on house arrest and continue with his schooling due to his age. It was not made clear how that schooling would be provided to him. There is usually an automatic explusion from school when a school is caught with a firearm.

Okelberry was atutomatically certified as an adult because he is 16. There is another hearing scheduled in a few weeks.
