FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A man who police say shot and wounded a Washington County sheriff’s deputy has pleaded not guilty to multiple charges.

Raymond Plumlee is charged with three counts of attempted capital murder in connection to the March 15 shooting near Fayetteville. Plumlee remains jailed without bond at the Washington County Detention Center.

The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/22KJ3qU) reports Lt. Tion Augustine was shot in the hip with a 12-gauge shotgun. Augustine underwent surgery at Washington Regional Medical Center and was released from a rehabilitation hospital on April 7.

According to police, Plumlee’s mother called authorities and said her son was psychotic and suicidal. Fayetteville police officers and sheriff’s deputies responded to the home.

Law enforcement officials have said Plumlee shot at police several times through some bushes, striking Augustine.
