The 17-year-old alleged gang member accused of shooting a fellow student at West Orange High School earlier this month has been charged as an adult, court records show. J’Morian Bell was booked into the Orange County Jail on Thursday afternoon on several felony charges, including attempted first-degree murder, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm on school grounds and discharging a firearm on school grounds. Bell is accused of shooting 15-year-old Jaroderick Smith, a student and football player at the high school, on Dec. 4. Jaroderick, who was shot in the face and abdomen, spent several days Orlando Regional Medical Center for treatment. After he was released, he said missed football and wanted to get back to school so he could get back to playing the game.
