Deuntray Kellogg of Chattanooga is wanted by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Chattanooga Police Department.

A Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge decided today there was enough evidence to try a 16-year-old accused of fatally shooting a business owner as an adult.

Judge Rob Philyaw set a $1,081,000 bond for Deuntray Kellogg, who is being held in Hamilton County Jail on charges of felony murder, especially aggravated battery and unlawful possession of a firearm, according to spokesman Sam Mairs.

Police believe Kellogg shot and killed 51-year-old Wonsik No inside his shop on 4th Avenue around 9:42 a.m. on September 7.

For most of that day, Kellogg was wanted by Chattanooga Police and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. His manhunt prompted police Chief Fred Fletcher to create a video encouraging the minor to surrender.

On Thursday, Philyaw reviewed evidence for two hours including video footage from the store before transferring Kellogg to Criminal Court.

Mairs said Philyaw determined enough evidence existed to move the case forward. "But he did not decide guilt or innocence," Mairs said.

The minor's next court appearance was not immediately available.
