A confrontation broke out in the courtroom as murder suspect Myshawn Allen was arraigned Friday afternoon on charges he killed Tyronn Hodges.
During the arraignment, a man whistled at the suspect while he stood at the front of the courtroom. A fight broke out between multiple parties in the courtroom, which was broken up by U.S. Marshals.
Allen was arrested and charged with second-degree murder for Hodges’ murder. He had previously been charged with assault with a dangerous weapon in 2015.
On Wednesday, police heard gunshots while on patrol and were approached by a woman, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. They then found Hodges’ body in a car nearby, riddled with gunshots. Hodges was pronounced dead at the scene.
Allen is being held without bond until his next scheduled appearance on February 21.
