OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A judge set bail at $10 million for a man accused of shooting up an Omaha bar and firing at police after fleeing to his apartment complex.

Dwight Rodgers’ bail was set Friday as he was charged with five counts of attempted murder, two counts of terroristic threats and seven counts of using a deadly weapon to commit a felony. Rodgers’ attorney didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press, seeking comment on the allegations against Rodgers.

Prosecutor David Wear says the 63-year-old Rodgers walked into the Parliament Pub Wednesday and started shooting, but his bullets hit no one. Rodgers then drove about a mile to the apartment complex. Wear says Rodgers fired in vain at officers before surrendering.

Rodgers’ next hearing is scheduled for March 9.
