** Washington D.C. EMT/firefighter arrested after aiming two guns at police; suspended


** February 5th has been set as the next court hearing for a Washington D.C. EMT/firefighter arrested after pointing two guns at police September 4th. That is the word from The Washington Post (Peter Hermann/September 11) which said Mohamed Goodwin, 32, has been charged with possession of unregistered firearms, unlawful discharge of a firearm, and assault on a police officer. According to the newspaper, Goodwin, who was hired by the fire department in September 2016, confronted police around 8:40 a.m. after they responded to a shots fired call in an alley. Once arriving on-scene, police ordered him to drop his gun. Although he eventually complied, he then pulled a second weapon from his belt, aimed it, but dropped it as well. Along with the guns, 15 shell casings were found at the site. Goodwin has now been placed on administrative leave. Coworkers have been warned to alert the department and police if he tries to return to work.
