On March 4, DC Superior Court Judge Errol Arthur maintained a shooting defendant’s probation since he’s in compliance with release conditions. 

Robert Brown, 23, is charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and carrying a pistol without a license outside of a home or place of business, for his alleged involvement in a non-fatal shooting that occurred on Jan. 17, 2020, on the 900 block of Wahler Place, SE. The shooting injured two victims in addition to a one-year-old pit bull.

Brown faced a possible revocation of his probation because of his alleged failure to comply with the terms. In the hearing, however, Brown’s Community Supervision Officer (CSO), reported that he has been fully cooperative since his last hearing on Jan. 4.

Brown tested negative for illegal drugs and is currently working on his GED.  

The prosecution had no further objection to the findings.llHowever, they stated that, because the victims were minors, their families still had safety concerns.

Brown’s probation is set to end on Nov. 27, 2024 and no further hearings are scheduled.
