A judge ruled taxi driver Kashif Bashir is incompetent to stand trial.
A taxi driver charged with shooting an Alexandria police officer has been found incompetent to stand trial.
Alexandria Circuit Court Judge Jim Clark is issuing an order declaring Kashif Bashir incompetent to stand trial for charges that he shot Alexandria police officer Peter Laboy in the head during a traffic stop in February. Bashir will be sent to a mental health facility where he will receive restorative services.
The judge determined that Bashir is not able to understand the court proceedings and assist in his defense — at least at this point. He's scheduled for another competency hearing in January.
Officer Peter Laboy returned to his home in April after surviving what one doctor described as a "one in a million" recovery.
