AUTAUGA CO., AL (WSFA) - Keon Cain, indicted in the 2017 triple shooting in Prattville, has been denied youthful offender status.

Cain, 20, along with Marty Morgan, 35, are indicted on the charge of capital murder of two or more people for the deaths of Eddie Scott, Anthony Smith, and Al Benson, capital murder during a robbery and seven counts of first-degree robbery. Cain is also charged with attempted murder for a fourth victim that survived a substantial injury.

The triple shooting and subsequent manhunt happened in July. The shooting took place during an apparent armed robbery at the Hook-Up Barbershop near the intersection of Highway 82 and Highway 14.

Aside from this case, Cain is also charged with second-degree rape, court documents indicate. The Autauga County indictment reads that Cain engaged in sexual intercourse with a female between 12 and 16-years-old.
