A state district judge has denied bail for a 17-year-old accused in the slaying of a convenience store clerk.

Devante Lemon, of Opelousas, was booked on first-degree murder in the shooting death of store clerk Waled Alqohaif.

Judge Alonzo Harris denied bail for Lemon on Wednesday, saying the teen poses a flight risk.

Alqohaif, 29, was found dead Jan. 6 behind the counter of the Opelousas store in the 600 block of South Railroad Avenue.

Also booked in the slaying was Jeffery Fisher, 27 of Lafayette.
