A Bridge City woman arrested on drug charges and then released on bond, is back in jail and now facing a murder charge for the same incident that resulted in the shooting death of a man in Silsbee.

The Hardin County Jail confirms Emily Rannols, 19, of Bridge City, is in jail Saturday on a murder charge.

A judge has set bond at $500,000.00 on the murder charge and $200,000.00 on a charge of Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity.

Jeremiah Grant, 19, was shot and killed early Wednesday morning. The deadly incident started at MLK and Pine in Silsbee and ended at the Buzzy Bee convenience store on Highway 96 South, according to Silsbee Police Chief Shawn Blackwell. Blackwell says evidence indicates Grant was shot during a confrontation in a vehicle and then pushed out of the car. Another man the chief hasn’t named was also shot in the vehicle.

“After pushing the man out of the vehicle on MLK, the other three made their way to the Buzzy Bee convenience store and asked the clerk to call for help, because one had suffered a gunshot wound on the upper part of the body,” the chief told the Brooks Report Live.

Bryce Pfeffer of Port Neches was arrested and released on possession of marijuana charges in the same case. He’s not charged in the homicide.
