Detroit man Jason Hogan is being charged for attempted murder and weapons violations after shooting a transgender woman he’d previously paid for sex.

CBS Detroit writes:

It’s alleged that on January 13, Hogan met the victim and arranged to pay for sexual activity in the back of his car. After performing a sex act, Hogan allegedly shot the victim in the face with a 9mm Ruger handgun. The victim escaped from Hogan, and sought treatment for her injury at a nearby hospital.

Trans women, especially sex workers, face horrific levels of social stigma and violence. And with hate-mongering politicians setting the tone, things could get worse.
