13-year-old Lynell Reynolds was sentinced to juvenile life on August 27 for the attempted murder of a 21-year-old man.

Orleans Parish Juvenile Judge Candice Bates-Anderson sentenced Reynolds to a state juvenile facility until he turns 21.

On March 26, Reyonolds and other teens approached two men on Morrison Road in New Orleans. After demanding a dollar, Reynolds shot Darrelle Scott in the back. The bullet struck Scott's spine and left him paralyzed from the waste down.

Reynolds was found guilty in July.
