A hearing is set in General Sessions Court on May 8 for a Lookout Valley teen charged with killing three people and wounding a fourth on Wednesday night.
Derek Morse was set for his first court appearance on Friday morning, but his attorney, Hank Hill, represented him. Attorney Hill said he had spoken earlier in the morning with Morse.
Assistant District Attorney Neal Pinkston said there would be a preliminary hearing at the May 8 date before Judge Christie Sell.
Morse has a host of prior charges, and prosecutors acted on Thursday to have him held without bond on those.
Meanwhile, a second gunman in the incident on Kelly's Ferry Road is still at large.
The three victims of the massacre in Lookout Valley were each shot multiple times.
The lone 16-year-old survivor said he heard one of the shooters say to the other, "Make sure they are all dead."
The victims were identified as John F. Lang, 53; Caleb N. Boozer, 29, and Jon E. Morris, 24.
