A Fulton County judge denied bond for a Clark Atlanta student accused of shooting a Morehouse student after an argument over a basketball game.
The attorney for Amir Obafemi, 21, told the judge the shooting was in self-defense.
"I believe the evidence in this case is clear, Cornelous Savage took two aggressive steps towards Mr. Obafemi in an attempt to engage him in a fight," said Akil Secret. "Mr. Obafemi has the right to defend himself and he can use as much force as he deems necessary to do that."
The judge heard testimony from investigators with the Morehouse Police Department and the Chief.
She had to decide if there was enough evidence to send Obafemi's case to a grand jury for possible indictment
One of the prosecutors told the judge there is no evidence or testimony that steps taken by Savage were aggressive in any nature, only that there were two steps taken in Obafemi's direction.
Savage was shot in his forearm.
After hearing only testimony from the Morehouse police officers and Obafemi's attorney, the judge denied Obafemi's bond and sent his case to a grand jury for possible indictment.
