TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A 29-year-old man has made his first court appearance on charges linked to the shooting and wounding of a Topeka, Kansas, police detective.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/2fFeMrI ) reports Christopher Curtis Harris was secured to a wheelchair in court Monday in Shawnee County District Court in Topeka, more than three weeks after being wounded during a gunfire exchange involving detective Brian Hill.

Harris is charged with attempted capital murder, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, aggravated robbery and criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

He’s jailed on $1 million bond.

Hill is expected to make a full recovery after being shot twice Nov. 5 while trying to capture the suspect after a convenience store robbery.

Online court records don’t show whether Harris has an attorney.
