HOOVER, Ala. (WIAT) — A suspect who allegedly shot at people during a road rage incident in Hoover, including injuring a police officer, has been charged with three counts of attempted murder.

On Tuesday, the Hoover Police Department addressed the shooting, confirming that Evan Rashad Lucas was charged with three counts of attempted murder.

On Sunday, officers were alerted about an alleged incident where a driver was experiencing road rage along I-459 and was waving a gun. Police later located the suspect at The Hills apartment complex in Hoover, where the suspect allegedly opened fire, injuring an officer in the process.

Lucas later surrendered to police and was taken into custody. Lucas, who was injured in the standoff with police, is currently being treated at a hospital, but will be taken to the Birmingham Jail on $1.5 million bond once he is discharged.

Hoover Mayor Frank Brocato expressed gratitude for a situation that could have ended much worse: “I’m grateful for how this ended, I’m grateful that our officer is home, I’m grateful the individual is alive and getting treated and certainly will be charged with this crime.”

The officer, a six-year veteran of the HPD whose name has not been released, was subsequently taken to the hospital and has since been released.

Chief Derzis said receiving the call that one of his officers was shot is a call he won’t soon forget, “As a police chief of almost 18 years, I think about it all the time. Officers getting hurt, officers getting shot, the ultimate sacrifice. And it’s something you never want to get. And I got that phone call that said I think we’ve got an officer shot. And I can tell you my heart went to my throat.”
