The suspect who was shot by a Glendale police officer has been released from the hospital and booked into jail.

Pablo Javier Aleman, 46, appeared in a Hamilton County courtroom Monday – nearly two weeks after he allegedly pulled a knife on Officer Josh Hilling during a confrontation on Interstate 75. Aleman was shot once in the abdomen and underwent surgery at University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

A judge set Aleman’s bond at $1 million for the attempted murder charge.

Hilling had stopped Aleman as he walked on I-75 near Sharon Road.

Body cam video shows Aleman continuing to approach the officer after he had been shot. With the knife in his hand, Aleman can be heard asking the officer to kill him as Hilling tells him to drop the knife.

Aleman was wanted by police in Maryland in connection with a homicide investigation. Baltimore County police claim Aleman stabbed his roommate on March 17 before making his way to Ohio.

A grand jury will hear Aleman’s case on April 21. After that, officials said, he will be extradited back to Maryland.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said the knife brandished on I-75 is likely the same weapon used in the stabbing death of Aleman’s roommate.
