Trial continued for Northern Kentucky man accused of shooting at four police officers

COVINGTON, Ky. -- A northern Kentucky man accused of shooting at four police officers in 2012 was scheduled to appear in a Kenton County courtroom Wednesday to begin his trial but it has been continued until January.

Pharo Wilson, 27, of Covington, appeared in Kenton County Circuit Court in October 2012 and was indicted on charges of attempted murder, first-degree assault, third-degree assault, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon and being a persistent felony offender.

Wilson pleaded not guilty on all charges.

He was arrested Sept. 28, 2012 in Cincinnati after an 11-hour manhunt.

Covington police were called to a robbery scene and say Wilson began firing when four officers approached an apartment building.

K-9 officer Specialist Mark Richardson was shot in the foot during the exchange and was taken to University Hospital.

Wilson is scheduled to appear in court on January 7, 2014.
