OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) -- — An Omaha teen goes on a shooting spree, killing a man, for a startling reason.

Friday a judge finds enough evidence to move Jacobi Terry, 17, to trial for murder, assault, and robbery.

On October 2 investigators say Terry walked into the Cheap Tobacco and Vape on 32 & L St. and murdered the clerk Bahy Altairi, 21. Testimony indicated he walked in, shot Altairi in the heart, and stole a firearm behind the counter.

Terry was allegedly with Marshaun Box, 17, who is charged with two counts of conspiracy.

“He (Terry) wanted to go do a lick for a glizzy,” OPD Homicide Investigator Matt Backora testified about what Box told detectives.

Investigators say shortly after the murder, Box set up a meeting with a Facebook acquaintance to buy shoes as well as possibly a firearm. During the confrontation, Terry allegedly pulled out a rifle again and shot at the sellers.

The sellers fled, but a bullet that went through the wall of the home struck Jared Sedlacek in the back. Sedlacek was temporarily paralyzed but he's now walking with a cane.
Prosecutors say Terry wanted to steal weapons.

"The kids with guns are getting younger and younger, guns are plentiful and it seems to be something they desire to have and they go to great lengths to get so it's very very disturbing the ages of all of these individuals,” said Deputy Douglas County Attorney Brenda Beadle. “Our victim is only 21 and when you're talking about all the suspects involved and they're high schoolers it's just something's got to change."

Box will have his Preliminary Hearing on Monday.
