On June 6, Erie English‘s effort to end probation was denied by DC Superior Court Judge Jason Park based on an alleged violation of his release terms. 

English, 45, was originally charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm during a crime of violence, and carrying a pistol outside the home for his alleged involvement in a non-fatal shooting that occurred on July 31, 2021 on the unit block of N Street, SE.

According to court documents, witnesses identified English as the shooter. 

He subsequently pleaded guilty to one count of assault with a dangerous weapon and one count unlawful possession of a firearm. 

On April 25, following a reported violation to appear for a court proceeding while on probation, a bench warrant was issued by Judge Park. English was later detained in Maryland. 

Judge Park ordered continued monitoring by the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA). Defense counsel for English, Stephen Logerfo, did not challenge the finding. 

Maryland court officials will determine next steps in the case.
