BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A second man has been charged in a case in which a Bismarck police officer shot and wounded a man who’s accused of trying to hit the officer with a vehicle.
Thirty-two-year-old Juan Nunez is accused of helping 22-year-old Ulises Villalobos-Alvarado avoid apprehension. He could enter a plea March 5 to a felony charge of hindering law enforcement.
Villalobos-Alvarado faces felony charges of attempted murder and fleeing. He’s accused of trying to run over a Bismarck officer who subsequently shot him in the arm.
The incident happened Jan. 18 as authorities were conducting a probation search. He later turned himself in at a gas station in Brookings, South Dakota.
