Eye Witness, Video Part of Testimony at Ahmad Robertson- Bey Preliminary Hearing

At a preliminary hearing Tuesday an MPD detective testified that an eye witness account, coupled with video footage, led police to arrest 22-year-old Ahmad Robertson- Bey in connection with the June shooting death of Andre Wilson.

Judge Robert E. Morin found probable cause at the hearing, sending the case to the grand jury to investigate. Robertson-Bey was ordered held in connection with the case. He is suspected of first-degree murder.

Testifying Tuesday, MPD Detective Mike Murphy said a witness claimed to have seen the fatal shooting.

Murphy also said police viewed video footage of a Metropolitan Police Department Crime Camera located at the corner of First Place and M Streets, Northwest. He said a portion of the video showed what appeared to be a group of men gathered just before one man began shooting at Wilson. The video depicted several people running in various directions after the shooting.

A felony status conference is scheduled in the case with Judge Beck on December 20th.
