...There was never any dispute that Patterson, 45, shot Dawkins, a 22-year-old shuttle driver for “PBS NewsHour,” after a verbal altercation in Alexandria’s Lynhaven neighborhood early May 22. Prosecutors conceded in court that Dawkins was intoxicated and, in an initial encounter before the shooting, likely confronted Patterson with a knife.
