NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — The attorney for one of two suspects charged in the fatal New Year’s Eve shooting of a Norfolk teacher has withdrawn a bond request.

Caroline Hendrix, who taught at Oceanair Elementary School, was shot in a friend’s driveway on Virginian Avenue in Norfolk. She later died at the hospital.

Police charged 70-year-old Edward Shaw of Utah with second-degree murder. The second suspect charged, Teniqu Cushman of Virginia Beach, faces conspiracy to commit second-degree murder.

WAVY’s Chris Horne reports that Shaw’s attorney withdrew a request for bond at a hearing on Friday.

According to the paperwork, Shaw has worked as an engineering consultant in Henderson, North Carolina since May 2017. He told a judge last month he has no family ties to the Hampton Roads area and no prior criminal record.

Police haven’t released any information about a possible connection between the two suspects and Hendrix.

A bond hearing is scheduled for Cushman on Feb. 5. Both suspects are due in court for a preliminary hearing on April 11.
