...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.
The question for the jury was whether Patterson, who was off duty, responded as a law enforcement agent who felt a duty to protect the community and then fired in self-defense, or whether he was an angry individual out for petty revenge.
