NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A suspect appeared in court Thursday night in a shooting that wounded a police officer in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.
The charges against the suspect, Rashun Robinson, 28, of Brooklyn, include attempted murder, assault on a police officer, criminal use of a firearm, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest.
He was arraigned in Brooklyn Criminal Court Thursday night after being held at the 71st Police Precinct Thursday evening.
He was ordered held without bail, and was set to return to court on Tuesday of next week.
He is accused of shooting Officer James Li, 26, who was wounded in both legs Wednesday by a man – allegedly Robinson – who tried to board a bus without paying, police said.
Robinson was expressionless and handcuffed as he walked out of the police station. He was expected to be held without bond, CBS 2’s Tony Aiello reported.
As CBS 2’s Tracee Carrasco reported, sources said he showed no remorse, telling officers, “I hate (expletive) cops.”
This came after he was accused of shooting Li, who was out with his fellow rookie officer Randy Chow, 30, in a stepped-up enforcement effort on the problem-plagued B46 bus route.
Around 5 p.m. Wednesday, the officers saw two men get on a B46 bus through the rear door at Utica Avenue and Empire Boulevard in Brooklyn, police said.
