Washington070518wide

The deputy Homeland Security director for Prince George’s County, Maryland was in court Friday for a preliminary hearing on assault charges stemming from an April 5 incident when a real estate agent mistakenly knocked on the door to the official’s home.  The agent was greeted by a belligerent Keith Washington who stuck a gun in his face and, according to the victim, yelled “I know  what the [expletive] you’re here for. You’re not here to do an appraisal”.

The official, Keith Washington, is already under investigation for shooting two Marlo Furniture movers who were making a delivery to his home in January. One of the men died from the the shooting, the other was wounded. Washington says he shot the men in self-defense.

Judge Hassan A El-Amin ruled that there is sufficient evidence to send the case to the grand jury, but also noted “numerous weaknesses” in the case.
