The D.C. police officer charged with felony murder has been ordered held without bond by a D.C Superior Court judge.

Authorities say Reggie Jones used his squad car to help a drug crew rob a rival dealer. The robbery happened in southeast D.C. about two weeks ago. According to court papers, Jones served as 'look-out' and used his marked car to clear the neighborhood block of people so the robbers would have an easier time.

There was a shoot-out. Police say a man in Jones' crew was killed. They say they do not believe Jones fired any shots, but under D.C. law he can be charged with murder for participating in the robbery. Jones was handcuffed by fellow officers Tuesday. A hearing is scheduled for next month.
