WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A man accused of shooting a woman inside a Derby AT&T; store has made his first court appearance.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/1TAorwM ) reports James Michael Phillips appeared in a Sedgwick County courtroom Thursday. He is charged on several counts including attempted capital murder.

According to authorities, Phillips tried to rob the store Tuesday morning. Court documents say he ordered two employees to the back of the store at gunpoint and shot a 60-year-old woman multiple times. She was the only customer in the store at the time and was in critical condition at Wesley Medical Center as of Thursday evening.

Police say Phillips then led officers on a brief chase to south Wichita, during which he fired at a Derby police officer.

He is being held on $500,000 bond. It was not immediately clear if Philips has an attorney.
