GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

A Gulfport mother left the courtroom sobbing after her 21-year-old son was denied a reduction in his $1.5 million bond.

Shaquil Sands has been in the Harrison County Adult Detention Center since late February, facing murder and aggravated assault charges. He went before judge Albert Fountain for a preliminary hearing on Wednesday. 

According to testimony from a detective with the Gulfport Police Department, police arrived to Robindale Rd. on Feb. 27 in reference to a shooting victim in the road. Richard Doby was pronounced dead at the scene. Another man with multiple gunshot wounds, identified as Dijon McCorkle, told detectives Sands shot them after an altercation because McCorkle threatened to get his gun.

Sands' attorney called his mother to the stand to testify that he isn't a flight risk and his bond should be reduced. Judge Fountain denied the request.

The case will now be turned over to a grand jury.
