Guilty Verdict in Chevy Chase Restaurant Shooting

According to the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office, “This afternoon, in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, MD, before the Honorable John Maloney, a jury convicted defendant, David Lee Brown III, 29, of Washington D.C. on charges of attempted voluntary manslaughter, first-degree assault, and use of a handgun. He faces up to 55 years in prison when he is sentenced on November 20th, 2023.

This stems from an incident at the Clyde’s Restaurant in Chevy Chase on November 14th, 2022, that began as an altercation between Brown and a woman.  Several people came to the woman’s defense and a physical altercation ensued. Brown pistol-whipped one male victim and shot another man. The shooting took place outdoors, but the fight then continued inside of the establishment sending employees running for cover.”

“This was a violent act at popular establishment that placed people in danger, including innocent bystanders. We thank Montgomery County Police for their work leading to the arrest and commend Assistant State’s Attorneys Mary Herdman and John Lalos for handling the prosecution of this defendant,” said State’s Attorney John McCarthy.
