ALTUS, OK (KSWO) -The Altus man who pointed a gun at an officer trying to serve him with an arrest warrant and was shot by that officer was in court Thursday morning.

Pete Miranda Jr. was charged with feloniously pointing a firearm, possession of controlled dangerous substances with intent to distribute and obstruction. Police say Miranda was shot Dec. 19 after pointing a gun at the officer trying to serve a warrant on a previous crime.

Investigators say Miranda barricaded himself in a bedroom with a handgun before running down the street and taking cover behind a car. Police say the officer fired several shots after seeing Miranda pointing the gun.

Miranda is being held on $150,000 bond. His preliminary hearing is set for Feb. 1.
