Non-Fatal Shooting Defendant Denied Bail has Trial Scheduled for March

A 33-year-old man allegedly involved in a non-fatal shooting has a trial scheduled for March after being denied bail on Jan. 18. 

Baltimore resident Juan Hall attended a bail hearing on Tuesday as the prosecution informed the court of his charges including first and second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, reckless endangerment, and several firearm-related charges. 

According to the prosecution, Hall has five prior convictions and was on active probation when he allegedly got into a dispute with a security guard at a Popeyes restaurant and shot him. 

Hall’s defense attorney, Jeremy Eldridge, argued that the security guard was the aggressor. He was rough with the defendant, and pinned him against the wall, Eldridge said.

Eldridge also said there is no evidence that proves that Hall committed the shooting that occurred there later. 

Hall was denied bail, and his trial is currently scheduled for March 8.
