Kentucky man shot while fleeing officers pleads not guilty

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – A Kentucky man who was shot while allegedly trying to run police over in a stolen van has pleaded not guilty to attempting to murder officers and fleeing authorities.

The Courier Journal reports 26-year-old Daniel Allen pleaded not guilty Saturday. Louisville police said Allen was found near a stolen van Thursday and climbed in as officers approached.

Police body camera video released Friday shows the van reversing and speeding away, despite being surrounded by officers on foot. An arrest citation says he attempted to crash into officers and was shot at.

Police later tore a hole through a house to pull the wounded suspect from its rafters after a nine-hour standoff. The officer who shot him is on desk duty.
