On July 9, the U.S. District Court in Baltimore denied bail to a 20-year-old man charged with attempted murder.

Khyree White, of Washington, D.C., was charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, first-degree assault, conspiracy to commit first-degree assault, use of a firearm in a crime of violence, conspiracy to use a firearm in a crime of violence, possession of a firearm in a vehicle, conspiracy to possess a firearm in a vehicle, discharging any weapon or pistol, possession of a firearm as a minor, possession of a loaded firearm in a vehicle, use of an assault weapon or magazine, conspiracy to use an assault weapon or magazine, possession of a separate magazine containing more than 10 rounds, conspiracy to possess a separate magazine containing more than 10 rounds, possession of a firearm without a serial number, conspiracy to possess a firearm without a serial number, endangering, grand theft auto, theft of $25,000-$100,000, unauthorized taking a motor vehicle and conspiracy to unlawfully remove a motor vehicle in connection with the March 28 incident.

During White’s bail hearing before Judge Yolanda A. Tanner, his attorney, Jeremy Eldridge, argued that White did not pose a flight risk because he had never appeared in court before.

According to Eldridge, White has a 1-year-old child and was trying to enlist in the military when the incident occurred.

On March 28, White and four other people allegedly shot at a woman in her vehicle. Judge Tanner said Baltimore Police Department investigators found at least 14 shell casings and 16 bullet holes in the victim’s vehicle.

“Shooting repeatedly into a vehicle endangers not only the occupant of the vehicle but anyone in the area,” Judge Tanner said.

White was denied bail due to the recklessness and seriousness of the offence.

He is scheduled to appear in Common Pleas Court on August 19 before Judge Melissa K. Copeland.
