There’s an update in the ongoing case of D.C. cop Kenneth D. Furr, who was involved in an ugly August 2011 shooting incident that involved two transwomen and their cis male companions in NW Washington.
It resulted in him discharging his service revolver at the car they were riding in and causing non life threatening injuries to three of the people in that vehicle.
He was also inebriated at the time of the August 26 incident.
The shooting incident happened in the wake of transwoman Lashai Mclean being killed in July 2011 and another transwoman being shot in the same neighborhood a week later where Mclean died but surviving the attack.
A D.C. Superior Court Grand Jury handed down a nine count indictment against Furr on March 7 which includes six counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, one count of assault with intent to kill while armed, and two counts of solicitation for prostitution.
Furr’s court status hearing was held on May 24 and D.C. Superior Court Judge Ann O’Reagan Keary denied a request by attorneys representing Officer Furr that he be released or the conditions of his bond be changed.
Furr’s trial will start October 15 and I’ll continue to keep you updated on what transpires in this case as it winds to its conclusion.
