The man accused of shooting Alexandria Police Officer Peter Laboy in the head has been ruled competent to stand trial, according to WJLA.

Taxi driver Kashif Bashir had previously been declared unfit for trial in July 2013 because defense attorneys said he suffered from auditory hallucinations and other mental health issues.

Bashir is accused of shooting Laboy on Feb. 27, 2013, when the officer pulled over the Alexandria Yellow Cab Bashir was driving near Lyles-Crouch Traditional Academy in Old Town.

Laboy has undergone several surgeries and is back in his Alexandria home undergoing additional therapy.

Bashir is facing one count of attempted capital murder of a law enforcement officer, one count of aggravated malicious wounding and two counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
