WARREN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - A grand jury filed a 10-count indictment against the 19-year-old man accused of shooting a Warren County Sheriff's deputy and his own father before running off, sparking a massive a manhunt last month.
Mohammed Abdou Laghaoui was indicted on attempted aggravated murder, two counts of attempted murder, three counts of felonious assault, two counts of improperly discharging a firearm at or into a habitation, tampering with evidence and domestic violence, Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell announced Tuesday. He faces a maximum of 68 years in prison.
Laghaoui will be arraigned Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. and will remain at the Warren County Jail.
Laghaoui shot and wounded Deputy Katie Barnes the second time she responded to a domestic violence call at an apartment at Orchard of Landen on June 9, sheriff's officials have said.
The initial call was for Laghaoui threatening to shoot and kill his father and brother, they said.
The deputy spoke to the two men 45 minutes, but left when they didn't cooperate or want to file charges, according to Warren County Sheriff Larry Sims. Apparently Laghaoui's relatives did not know he was armed.
But deputies were called back nearly an hour later - and that's when Laghaoui fired at her with an AK-47 assault rifle almost as soon as she arrived, the sheriff has said.
Laghaoui's father also was found shot in the hand.
Authorities are still searching for the AK-47.
