On Feb. 6 Superior Court Judge Eric Glover approved a request from the defense attorney to continue a preliminary hearing on a later date. 

Amonate McCalvin, 19, is charged with one count of assault with a dangerous weapon and one count of aggravated assault knowingly while armed. McCalvin was allegedly involved in a non-fatal shooting incident over a mutual lover on Sept. 8, 2023, on the 4500 block of Condon Terrace, SE.

According to court documents, defense attorney Brandi Harden was appointed as the new counsel for McCalvin on Jan. 31. During the preliminary hearing, Harden requested to have the hearing continued to allow her more time to prepare. 

Parties are slated to return on Feb. 22.
