    Did he shoot the gun? How is pointing a gun at someone attempted murder?

  2. JJErler says:

    7:51 AM PT — THE JUDGE HAS THROWN OUT THE ATTEMPTED MURDER CHARGES.

    The judge explained, “The court does not believe at this time there’s enough set forth in the affidavit to support an attempted murder based on these facts.”

    He continued, “It just seems if he wanted to shoot Mrs. Silva, he would’ve done it. He didn’t do it.”

    The judge says he will pursue charges for aggravated assault with a firearm.
