A man accused of trying to kill a law enforcement officer had his day in court today.
71-year-old Anthony LaCastro reportedly fired several rounds from an AR-15 rifle at State Police while they were responding to a call for a domestic dispute.
The incident happened in the 2300 block of Dorn Road last January. LaCastro also took a bullet to the abdomen that night. He faces numerous charges including attempted murder of a law enforcement officer of the first degree, aggravated assault, and recklessly endangering another person.
At the preliminary hearing, LaCastro maintained his innocence.
Jury selection began this morning for his trial.
