Bail denied for defendant in police shooting, escape case

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A judge has denied bail for a man who police say was handcuffed when he allegedly shot a western Pennsylvania police officer three times with a gun police didn’t know he had before fleeing to West Virginia. The Tribune-Review reports that Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Edward Borkowski said Tuesday there were no conditions that could guarantee that 22-year-old Koby Lee Francis would appear in court. The McKeesport resident was returned Friday to Pennsylvania from Clarksburg, West Virginia. He was arraigned on charges including aggravated assault, criminal attempt homicide, person not to possess a firearm, and flight to avoid apprehension trial or punishment as well as an escape charge.
