Man, 31, Charged In Officer-Involved Shooting 11-02-2010

The Saginaw County prosecutor has charged a man with assault with intent to murder a police officer after he allegedly exchanged gunshots with officers from the Saginaw County Emergency Service team.
Stephen Lijah Huffman, 31, is accused of shooting the officer Saturday morning as the team arrived at an upstairs apartment at 429 S. Fourth Ave., to deliver a search warrant for illegal property and drugs.
The unidentified officer was shot twice while serving the search warrant. Police said he was not seriously injured becuase he was wearing a bullet proof vest.
Police said three officers returned fire, hitting Huffman in the upper leg and left arm.
Two of the three police officers who swapped gunfire with Huffman were placed on paid leave Tuesday.
Huffman is also facing several other charges, including felon in possession of firearm and felony possession with intent to deliver cocaine.
