A Denver grand jury has indicted a murder suspect on five counts in connection with an unrelated incident last week.
The jury returned its indictment against 27-year-old Brian Allen Washington on charges of attempted first-degree murder, illegal discharge of a firearm, and other counts.
He allegedly fired a shot at a 55-year-old woman who was sitting in her car at a Denver intersection on the morning of September 18th.
The woman ducked. The bullet grazed her head and slammed into the back seat.
She drove away and called police.
Washington is also accused of shooting police Detective Mike Thomas to death two days later at an Aurora intersection.
Thomas was on-duty at the time but in his personal car, on his way to a training center.
Washington is being held at the Adams County Jail
