ALAMOSA, Colo. (KRDO) -- The attorney accused of shooting a disabled veteran during a protest earlier this month was in court this morning.
James Marshall, 27, was formally charged with attempted murder and assault after investigators say he shot Danny Pruitt, 49, in the head.
After his charges were read, Marshall was ordered to surrender all of his firearms. He still remains free on bond.
Supporters of the Pruitt gathered outside of the courthouse Monday morning with signs reading "Justice for Danny."
Pruitt, who is from Canon City, is a disabled veteran and single father to a little girl. His family tells KRDO he remains in a Colorado Springs hospital with a traumatic brain injury.
A video obtained exclusively by KRDO from a nearby business shows the moments leading up to the June 4 shooting. The shooting happened as Pruitt was driving through a crosswalk and Marshall was protesting. Pruitt appears to drive through the crosswalk and a protestor wearing a black shirt and light-colored backpack pulls out what police say is a gun out of his pocket.
Authorities say Marshall shot Pruitt through the passenger window of his truck. Afterward, a protester runs away into what appears to be James Marshall's law office in downtown Alamosa.
A preliminary hearing for the case has been set for August 28. The District Attorney in Alamosa tells KRDO it is pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic's impact on the courts and trials.
If a judge believes there is enough evidence to move forward with the charges, the case will be bound over to district court.
