Man deemed competent to stand trial

STAFF WRITER

VICTORVILLE • Criminal proceedings were reinstated Thursday for a man accused of shooting at a woman at an Armory Road bus stop one year ago.

Antonio Mosby, 27, was deemed mentally competent to stand trial following a medical report by Mitchell E. Harris PhD., court records show.

Questions surrounding Mosby’s mental competency arose in May after he refused to be transported from West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga to Victorville Superior Court for a pre-trial hearing.

Mosby was ordered to appear at the Victorville courthouse on March 14 for a pre-trial hearing, court records show.

According to court records, Mosby faces charges of attempted murder, assault with a firearm on a person and evading a peace officer with wanton disregard for safety in connection with a drive-by shooting.

Mosby was arrested in February 2013 after police spotted him driving a Ford Taurus that matched the description of a vehicle used in a shooting that left a 22-year-old woman wounded at a bus stop on Armory Road.

Mosby is being held at High Desert Detention Center in Adelanto in lieu of $50,000 bail.
