DENVER (AP) - A 32-year-old man accused of shooting at Denver police officers while his hands were cuffed behind his back has denied several charges.

The Denver Post reports (http://dpo.st/1pYij1E ) Isaac Vigil pleaded not guilty Friday to five counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of assaulting a peace officer with a weapon, one count of possession of a controlled substance, as well as other charges.

He was arrested on drug charges May 14 and was being taken to a district police station when investigators say he pulled a weapon, shot at the officers and missed.

Another police officer opened fire and hit Vigil, sending him to the hospital.

Officers say they searched Vigil three times before arresting him, but the man managed to hide a .25-caliber semi-automatic pistol from them.
