During a probation show cause hearing on April 21, DC Superior Court Judge Michael Ryan`gave a defendant a second chance at probation in a shooting case.

Tyran Baker, 35, was charged with unlawful discharge of a firearm and possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device for shooting a firearm on Jan. 1, 2022, on the 3300 block of 13th Street, SE.

Baker was already sentenced on Sept. 1, 2022, for attempted possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device and unlawful discharge of a firearm. 

While on probation, Baker was arrested for carrying a pistol without a license in another case. A violation of his probation. 

Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA) recommended Baker’s probation be revoked, but Judge Ryan decided to give him an additional six months of probation starting today. 

If Baker fails to comply, he will return to jail.
