GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Accused cop shooter Corey Johnson’s preliminary hearing has been delayed.

WLOX-TV reports (https://bit.ly/15N6M3p ) Wednesday’s scheduled hearing was postponed because Johnson’s new defense attorney, Michael Crosby, has a scheduling conflict.

Crosby says he’s just diving into the details surrounding the Nov. 23 shooting. He says he’s convinced the circumstances that led to the Gulfport Police Officer Dolton Bradley’s injuries are not as clear cut as investigators claim.

Johnson reportedly ran from police during the traffic stop and then, during a scuffle with Bradley, allegedly fired two shots into the officer’s stomach. The officer is recovering at home.

Harrison County’s prosecuting attorney says preliminary hearings are held on Wednesdays. So, the next chance Johnson will have to hear the attempted murder charge against him, and enter a plea will be Dec. 10.
