This Abilene man is behind bars for allegedly firing shots at a police officer.

APD says 24-year-old Richard Renteria was arrested early Saturday morning, at a South Abilene home.

Police records show what started as an arrest for an outstanding warrant for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon quickly escalated when Renteria tried to flee through a window.

That's when the suspect allegedly discharged a firearm at one officer. After a foot chase he was arrested and his bond was set at over 500,000 dollars
