CHICAGO (STMW) – A man charged in connection with a shooting that left a police officer wounded was denied bond Sunday.

Andre Miles, 35, of the 10500 block of South Maryland Avenue, was charged with one count each of felony attempted first-degree murder and aggravated battery by discharge of a firearm, police said. Miles was denied bond at a Sunday hearing, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s office.

The shooting he is charged in connection with happened Friday, police said. Calumet District police officers responded about 4:35 p.m. to a call of “information for the police” in the 100 block of West 103rd Street following an earlier shots fired call at that location.

Two responding officers proceeded to the rear of the location — and were shot at, police said. One of the officers was struck in his bullet-resistant vest and arm. The 41-year-old officer, a seven-year veteran assigned to the Calumet District, was taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said multiple weapons were recovered inside the West 103rd Street residence.

A 16-year-old boy was also charged with felony aggravated battery to a police officer, police said.

Miles’ next court date is Tuesday.
