Man on trial for allegedly firing shots at LPD officer

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock, TX (KCBD) – Testimony began Tuesday afternoon in the case against a man accused of assaulting a Lubbock police officer back in 2006. Michael Gonzales faces one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He is on trial for allegedly firing multiple shots at LPD Officer Marcus Wall who was on duty.

Officer Wall told jurors he spotted two suspicious men in dark clothes near 59th and Utica and tried to make contact but, before he could get out of his unit he saw a flash and heard what sounded like gunshots.

Officer Wall told the jury of 12 he took cover by crouching on the floorboard of his patrol car. Prosecutors showed the jury pictures of Officer Wall's patrol car with multiple bullet holes, some near where Officer Wall was hiding.

This was Officer Wall's second time to take the stand in a trial related to the incident. In 2008, he testified against another defendant, Juan Zuniga, who jurors found guilty and sent to prison for 30 years.

Testimony resumes Wednesday morning at 9 a.m.
