A Metropolitan Police Department officer accused of drunkenly opening fire on a car full of people that included transgenders will be held without bond as he awaits trial.
A preliminary hearing has been continued until Friday in the case of an off-duty Metropolitan Police Department officer accused of drunkenly climbing onto the hood of a car and firing shots at the five people inside after an altercation with the group.
Officer Furr could have also been in fear of the individuals after he noticed their car tailing him less than an hour after he got into an altercation with one of the individuals, he said.
"The officers ordered him off the car at gunpoint," he said.
