Greyhound bus shooting suspect appears in court


Deputy Public Defender Paul Cadman shields his client, Anthony Devonte Williams, during a court appearance Wednesday. Williams was scheduled to be arraigned for allegedly carrying out a shooting on a Greyhound Bus early Monday morning. The arraignment was postponed until next week.

The suspect in the Greyhound bus shooting was charged Wednesday with first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder for allegedly opening fire on the bus, leaving one dead and five others injured.

Anthony Devonte Williams, 33, of Capital Heights, Md., appeared in court Wednesday afternoon to be arraigned on the charges but the hearing was continued at the request of deputy public defender Paul Cadman. Williams appeared in a far corner of court, dressed in dark blue scrubs. Cadman shielded his face with a yellow legal pad, leaving only a mass of dreadlocks visible above Williams' head.
