CORRYVILLE, OH (FOX19) -

A suspect who was fired at by Cincinnati Police after a chase in Corryville made his first court appearance Wednesday morning.

Delmar Byrd, 23, is charged with felonious assault and having weapons while under disability. His bond was set at $250,000.

Police were called to Corry Street Tuesday evening due to reports of a fight in the area. Officers were given the description of a man with a weapon at the scene. When police arrived at the scene, they say Byrd was pointing a gun at Officer Nathan Asbury.

Police say they then fired one shot at Byrd. The bullet missed him, and a short foot chase ensued. The chase ended near the intersection of West Corry Street and Vine Street at about 6:45 p.m.

This is the third time police officers have had to discharge their weapons since Friday. On Friday, a man was taken to the hospital after an exchange of gunfire near Findlay Market involving a police officer. On Saturday, a teenager was shot by a police officer on Fountain Square. He later died from his injuries.

"This has got to stop," said Police Chief James Craig. "The message to the young people that decide to arm themselves and confront officers with guns, they must know they will be met with tragic consequences."

"You can't point guns at anyone and you can't point guns at police officers."

Byrd was taken to the hospital because he had reportedly taken drugs. He was released from the hospital and booked in the Hamilton County Justice Center just before 2 a.m. Wednesday morning.
