SEATTLE (AP) - A 47-year-old Woodinville, Washington, man accused of shooting a Duvall police officer in the leg and firing at a King County sheriff’s officer during a high-speed pursuit has been ordered held without bail.

The Seattle Times reports (https://is.gd/IJqCVK ) that King County prosecutor’s spokesman Dan Donohoe says Joshua Stephen Kramer declined to appear Wednesday at his bail hearing. A judge found probable cause to detain him for investigation of two counts of first-degree assault. It was not known late Wednesday whether Kramer had a lawyer.

In court papers, police say the man had four guns and a knife when he was arrested.

Duvall Sgt. Michael DeBock was shot in the leg after responding Monday night to a report of someone firing paint balls. Despite his injury, DeBock chased his assailant at speeds nearing 90 mph until backup officers took up the pursuit. Police allege that the fleeing man fired a shot at a sheriff’s officer who got in front of him and braked in an effort to slow him down.

Duvall is northeast of Seattle.
