Defense Attorney Withdraws From 2019 Homicide Case

A DC Superior Court judge granted a defense attorney’s motion to withdraw from a 2019 homicide case on Aug. 3.

Terrance Prue is charged with first-degree murder while armed for allegedly shooting 39-year-old Bruce Gilmore on the 3500 block of 22nd Street, SE, on June 5, 2019.

In her motion to withdraw, defense attorney Brandi Harden states that “a conflict has arisen which makes representation under the circumstances impossible.”

Prue, 20, also changed counsel in December 2019, D.C. Witness previously reported.

Judge Neal Kravitz scheduled a hearing for Aug. 31 to give Prue’s new counsel an opportunity to speak with him. Prue is also expected to be arraigned at that time.

Prue is also charged with possession of a firearm during a crime of violence, assault with a dangerous weapon and carrying a pistol without a license in his case.
