Man Accused of Shooting at Police Advised of Charges

By  | 

The man accused of shooting at police heard the charges against him Friday.

Frank Goad is facing attempted first degree murder of a peace officer, attempted robbery, and aggravated robbery.

During the advisement, the judge called Goad's name and at first, he didn't appear.

Minutes later, the judge tried again and this time Goad complied and listened to the charges.

The most serious charge stems from events on Tuesday. Police received a report that a shot had been fired near Goose Gossage Park in Colorado Springs.

Police arrived to investigate, and found Goad there with another man, Patrick Addison.

According to court papers only obtained by 11 News, a police officer approached the pair, and Addison did what the officer said.

Goad allegedly stood up and fired three shots at the officer. The officer fired back, but Goad got away.

Goad was on the run for several days, before a Manitou Springs police officer spotted him walking down the street and arrested him.

He is also accused of trying to carjack a vehicle following that alleged shooting.

11 News has learned that police believe Goad robbed a 7-11 the day before he was arrested. According to court papers in that case, Goad allegedly pointed a gun at two cashiers, demanding cash and cigarettes. Police were able to use surveillance video to connect Goad to the crime.

Goad is being held on $525,000 bond and is scheduled to be in court August 8th.
