Coriano Banks is accused of stopping the woman from leaving in her car and punching her in the face the night of Sept. 20 in a parking lot off Boyd Farms Drive, according to court documents.

When the woman’s step-father approached and told Banks to leave, Banks reportedly pulled a handgun and shot once at the man, according to an affidavit.

Police say two vehicles were hit by the round fired by Banks and that they found a spent .40-caliber casing at the scene.

There was an order of protection against Banks in place since May involving the woman, according to court records.

Banks is set to return to court Oct. 6.
