DC Superior Court Judge Judith Pipe held a non-fatal shooting defendant during an initial hearing on April 24.

Lorenzo Shaw, 30, is charged with possession of a firearm during a crime of violence and assault with a dangerous weapon in connection to a domestic incident on the unit block of Galveston Street, SW on April 23. 

According to court documents, Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) officers responded to a domestic incident where Shaw allegedly pointed a gun at his wife, who was unharmed. Officers found a live round on the floor of a room where Shaw allegedly tried to gain entry. The two were in the process of separating and were arguing over the keys to a wheel lock. 

Judge Pipe found probable cause and held Shaw with two stay-away orders

Shaw is scheduled to return to court on April 27.
