Elijah J. Johnson fired two shots into David Lofley early Monday — the second as the 59-year-old Lofley was already down, Deputy District Attorney Andrew Eads alleged, in seeking a no-bond hold.

Johnson’s public defender, however, suggested a claim of self-defense, and said a no-bond hold would be illegal.
