Attorney wants photo ID thrown out of court in shooting case

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A defense attorney claims his client was identified by a victim who still had a bullet in his brain.

In March of 2014, Jacquez Brown was shot in the head on the corner of Dewey and South Avenues in Youngstown.

Brown identified his shooter as Dashonti Baker after he was shown a picture by Youngstown police detectives 10 days after the incident.

Baker's attorney said Brown was under heavy medication after waking up from a coma at the time he identified his client. He also added that Ohio state law requires a photo lineup of at least 10 suspects.

The judge will now decide whether or not the photo ID will be thrown out of the case.
