A man who fired at two officers and was wounded in a shootout was released from the hospital on October 28 and is facing attempted first-degree murder, police said.
Marcus de la Torre, 33, was released from Banner-University Medical Center Tucson and was booked into the Pima County jail.
De la Torre is also facing aggravated assault on a peace officer with a deadly weapon and misconduct involving weapons as a prohibited possessor, police said in a news release.
Officer Robert Miranda suffered a grazing bullet wound to the side of his head during the Oct. 24 shooting on the city's south side.
At about 8 p.m. in the area of East 34th Street and South Park Avenue, Officers Miranda and Robert Orduño, a 10-year veteran of the force, were working a special assignment with gangs and narcotics enforcement.
Miranda and Orduño saw a man on a motorized bicycle commit traffic violations and attempted to stop the bicyclist, who later was identified as De la Torre, police said.
The suspect refused to pull over and eventually jumped off the bicycle and ran from the officers. During the chase, shots were exchanged between the man and Miranda, who was wounded and lying in the street still shooting, as seen on dashcam video footage released by police.
Orduño drove the patrol car and parked it near Miranda, and then ran after the suspect and gunfire also was exchanged between the two.
De la Torre was wounded multiple times and underwent surgery at the hospital. Police said a Glock 9mm handgun and narcotics in De la Torre's possession were recovered.
