A grand jury will consider evidence next month in the case of a taxicab driver charged with shooting an Alexandria police officer in the head, after nearly a dozen witnesses testified in an Alexandria courtroom Wednesday, weaving together the narrative of the violent encounter and the ensuing high-speed chase.
Relatives, friends, and a few hundred unofficial family members turned out in Old Town Alexandria on Sunday to support a police officer critically injured in the line of duty.
Colleagues of the Alexandria Yellow Cab driver accused of shooting an Alexandria police officer said they were stunned to hear one of their own was involved in the incident.
Doctors were cautiously optimistic Thursday about the condition of an Alexandria police officer who suffered a "catastrophic" wound when he was shot in the temple during a routine traffic stop.
"We don't really know much about what took place," he said. "We're just really concerned with the officer and his family."
Mr. Summers could not comment on the company's policy for carrying guns in cabs, but he said the taxi service was fully cooperating with police.
