NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A judge has revoked bond for a teenager who is accused of shooting and killing an elderly man in Nashville.

A hearing for Myeisha Brown was held Thursday, during which Judge Jennifer Smith revoked her bond.

In 2017, the then 16-year-old Brown allegedly shot and killed Ruxin Wang as he was taking out the trash on Claiborne Street in Nashville. The 74-year-old grandfather had just stepped out of his son's newly purchased home when he was fatally wounded.

A judge later determined that given her lengthy criminal history, she should be tried as an adult.

She was held on a $100,000 bond. However, earlier this year, a fundraising website raised more than $11,000 for her to post bail .

Brown was later rearrested and placed under house arrest after investigators said she violated her parole. She was allegedly caught with a stolen vehicle and charged with two counts of drug possession.

The District Attorney’s Office said the decision to revoke her bond was based on “repeated offenses.”
