HERCULES, Calif. (AP) - Police say a retired San Francisco Bay Area police officer has been arrested and charged with attempted murder for allegedly firing shots at the home of his estranged wife.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Thursday (https://bit.ly/1Liwb2o) that 47-year-old John Goodner is being held in lieu of $1.8 million bail. Prosecutors have charged him with attempted murder, shooting into an occupied dwelling, making criminal threats and stalking, all felonies.

Goodner’s estranged wife called 911 early on Jan. 28, saying she was awakened when someone shot into her Antioch house through a bedroom wall.

Police determined that Goodner had been stalking and threatening his wife and had fired numerous shots into the home.

The shooting happened two days after his wife filed a restraining order against him.

Goodner retired from the Hercules Police Department in 2009.
