DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- "What a day..."

This is what Mohammed Abdou Laghaoui's brother told a Warren County dispatcher in the moments leading up to a seven-hour manhunt in the community of Landen last week. 

Laghaoui, 19, shot his own father and left a sheriff’s deputy hospitalized before he was finally arrested, Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell said.

Warren County Sheriff Larry Sims said Laghaoui threatened to kill his father and brother Thursday night at their apartment. Laghaoui punched his father in the face and left, Sims said. When Laghaoui came back, he had an AK-47 assault rifle.

Laghaoui's father and brother wouldn't let him in, so he shot through the door, striking his father in the hand, authorities said. Then he fired several times at Warren County Sheriff’s Deputy Katie Barnes, who had responded to the emergency call. One bullet struck her gun belt and grazed her lower abdomen.

Laghaoui is being held at the Warren County Jail on two counts of felonious assault, one count of attempted aggravated murder and one count of attempted murder.  

He was arraigned Monday morning in Mason Municipal Court via video hookup from the jail. A judge set his bond at $2 million.

In court, Laghaoui said the charges were "not accurate" and argued his high bond.

"That is not accurate. I don't have this kind of money," he said. "The charges are not accurate. We need a lawyer and we need to start talking about this stuff before you go ahead and judge it."

When the judge increased bond from the recommended $500,000 amount, Laghaoui argued it.

"She just said $500,000," he said. "What was the point of this, man?"

Deputies are still looking for the weapon used in the shooting; it's believed to be an AK-47-type assault weapon. K9 units have been searching the Landen area for he gun since Friday.
