Indictment handed down in Ronnie Bowers shooting case

UPDATE @ 2:36 p.m.

Kylen Gregory’s attorney said his client did have a gun and did pull the trigger, but that there was no plan to injure anyone let alone result in a death.

“We believe that Kylen is innocent of the (major) charges in the indictment,” Jon Paul Rion said. “There was no intent to cause any physical harm to any person in this case. It is a definite tragedy. It clearly involves a lack of judgment, but it’s not murder.”

Rion said he believes his client has been overcharged.

“The law requires an amount of intentionality when it comes to felonious assault and murder charges,” Rion said. “There’s no evidence of that, in fact there’s evidence that there was no intent.”

Rion said his client will plead not guilty during the Thursday arraignment and that he will seek a jury trial.

UPDATE @ 2:13 p.m.

Ronnie Bowers was shot the evening of Sept. 4, 2016 following the Alter Fest event. He died from his injuries Sept. 6, 2016.

In July of this year, the juvenile court judge granted a motion for the transfer of Kylen Gregory’s case to adult court. 

All of Gregory’s count include three‐year firearm specifications, according to the prosecutor's office. 

Gregory has a $1 million bond at the Montgomery County Juvenile Detention Center.

"This was a tragic and senseless shooting. Ronnie Bowers, a completely innocent victim, was killed because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time and got caught in someone else's fight,” said Prosecutor Mat Heck in a release.


The suspected shooter in the killing of Kettering teen Ronnie Bowers has been indicted on murder and other charges.

Kylen Gregory, 17, was indicted by a grand jury today and remains in custody, according to court records.
