GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) - Police say the man who shot a police officer after a late-night traffic crash has been indicted on attempted aggravated murder charges.

Police said in a news release Thursday that David Allen Charlton is charged with multiple counts of attempted murder and weapons possession by certain felons, and charges including heroin and methamphetamine distribution.

Police say they responded to a report of a man fleeing a vehicle crash April 27 and say when Officer Scott Shropshire of the Fairview Police Department and other officers found Charlton, he immediately shot at them, hitting Shropshire.

Officers say they returned fire, hitting Charlton multiple times.

Shropshire has been treated at a hospital and released. Charlton remains in custody while recovering in a hospital.

Police say a grand jury has also cleared the three involved officers from any wrongdoing. They can return to active duty.
