Testifier Lays Out Purloined Motorcar Involved in Drive-By Fusillade
A witness in a courtroom in Washington testified Thursday that the stolen vehicle used in a drive-by shooting was the same one they had spotted earlier.
The court heard from the witness, who described how they saw the car being driven erratically in a nearby parking lot. The witness told the court that the vehicle had no license plate.
The witness also testified that they were able to identify the vehicle due to its distinctive paint job and other features. After the witness had finished their testimony, the prosecution rested its case.
The defense had no objections to the witness’ testimony and did not present any evidence of its own.
The jury is now deliberating and is expected to reach a verdict soon. The defendant is accused of being involved in the drive-by shooting and faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
The trial has highlighted the dangers of stolen vehicles, which are often used in violent crimes. Law enforcement officials have called on the public to be more vigilant in reporting suspicious vehicles that have no license plates.
