Man Accused Of Shooting At Mosque Held Another Week

A man accused of firing shots at a mosque in Meriden, Connecticut has been ordered to remain in federal custody at least another week.

Ted Hakey Jr. appeared Monday in U.S. District Court in New Haven. Prosecutors argued he is a danger and should be held without bond until the case is resolved.

Hakey is facing hate-crime charges related to the firing of four shots at the Baitul Aman Mosque last month shortly after the terror attacks in Paris.

The mosque is next door to his home. Nobody was injured in the shooting.

Hakey's defense attorney did not present an argument and said he would respond to the government's statements at the next hearing scheduled for a week from today.
