SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A Salem man is being held without bail after a prosecutor says he allegedly shot at three police officers, injuring one, during an investigation in Salem last week.
On Monday, Alejandro Maciel-Salcedo, 27, was arraigned on the charges of three counts of attempted murder, three counts of unlawful use of a weapon, one count of assault and illegal possession of a firearm by a felon, the Statesman Journal reported.
According to Salem police, Salem Police detective Angus “Scotty” Emmons and other detectives were in a vehicle after conducting an investigation when another vehicle drove up and Maciel-Salcedo allegedly fired “several shots” at the detectives.
One of the bullets penetrated the vehicle and struck Emmons in the arm, police said. Emmons drove to a nearby hospital, where police say he was treated and released later that day.
Maciel-Salcedo fled to a home and hours later he surrendered to SWAT teams, police said.
It wasn’t immediately known if Maciel-Salcedo has a lawyer to comment for him.
