Augusta, GA - Xavier Cooper, the Paine College shooting suspect, appeared in court Friday for his bond hearing.

Cooper is facing charges of aggravated assault, having weapons on campus, and having a weapon during the commission of a crime.

Cooper's attorney pleaded for bond on the basis he would return to Dekalb County, so that he'd be away from Richmond County and pose no risk to any witnesses.

The judge granted a $54,000 bond on these conditions: Cooper cannot come to Richmond County unless for court, and have no contact with the victim.
