LONGMONT, Colo. (CBS4) – The man accused of shooting an AR-15 at a Longmont police officer will appear in court on Monday.

The shooting happened last month after a traffic stop. Investigators say Jonathan Shank started firing at the officer. The officer took cover behind his car and fired back.

Shank was hit three times and has been in the hospital ever since. Doctors now say he has recovered enough to be arrested and go to court.

Shank is charged with attempted first-degree murder.
