PHOENIX (AP) - Bond is set at $1 million for a convicted felon who's accused of shooting and wounding a Phoenix police officer.
Brandon McCabe made his initial court appearance Thursday. He's being held on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder, misconduct involving weapons, criminal trespassing and resisting arrest.
Authorities say the 28-year-old McCabe is prohibited from possessing a firearm.
McCabe allegedly shot Phoenix policeman Peter "Chris" Bennett six times last Sunday night. The 36-year-old Bennett survived and is recovering from surgery to his face, right arm and right hip.
Police say Bennett approached McCabe in an area with a high burglary rate. They say McCabe ignored the officer's command and the two exchanged gunfire.
McCabe was found hiding in a shed and arrested. He also was hospitalized with gunshot wounds to both hands.
