The circuit on Wednesday handed down an en banc ruling affirming a district court’s decision to suppress a gun and other evidence that officers with the Richmond Police Department in Virginia seized from a man, Billy Curry. The police were responding to a shooting when they stopped the man, but the court found the search was not based on exigent circumstances, which allows for warrantless searches, and was therefore unlawful.
