Man accused of shooting off-duty officer curses at judge

MIAMI (WSVN) - Two men accused of shooting a Doral police officer outside of his Palmetto Bay home faced a judge, Thursday, and one of them had to be removed from the courtroom after an outburst.

Demetrius Jones and Kionee Bell appeared in court in front of a judge, where Jones began shouting expletives before a bailiff escorted him out of the courtroom.

Both men have been charged for the robbery and shooting of Officer Gary King.

King was off-duty at the time of the robbery, which took place outside of home.

The trial for both suspects is set to begin on April 16.
