A Harris County judge has set a Thursday bail hearing for Terran Green, the man accused of shooting three police officers and injuring another over a 24-hour period last week.
Green, who faces four charges of attempted capital murder of a peace officer, will remain in jail at least through the hearing before 180th Criminal Court Judge DaSean Jones.
Prosecutors filed a notice Friday seeking to deny bail to Green. They cited his criminal history, the use of a firearm in the alleged crimes and the fact that Green was out on bail at the time of the shootings.
Green has been convicted of at least five felony charges since 2007, including theft, evading arrest and possession of drugs with intent to distribute.
Green had a warrant out for his arrest when the shootings took place. He posted bonds totaling $55,000 a few weeks after his arrest in March on aggravated assault and illegal weapons possession charges. He then failed to show up for a court appearance in May.
The 34-year-old was arrested late Thursday after a five-hour police standoff in northeast Harris County that began with shots fired at law enforcement officers, three of whom were injured. The shirtless suspect emerged from the second floor of the house at 11:40 p.m., clinging to the robotic arm of a police vehicle that partially demolished the residence with heavy equipment.
At the time of the standoff, police had been searching for Green for about 24 hours. Authorities said Green shot Harris County sheriff’s deputy Joseph Anderson during a Wednesday evening traffic stop and fled the scene.
Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said Sunday that Anderson is “progressing well” after initially being considered in “critical but stable condition” following at least two gunshot wounds to the torso. The three law enforcement officers injured at the standoff were released from the hospital within a day.
Standing outside a courtroom Monday morning, Green’s attorney, Tucker Graves, said he believed all defendants are entitled to a bond, no matter the offense.
“We’ve got some issues here we need to raise in front of a judge, ties to the community, that sort of situation,” he added.
