Santa Fe speed van shooting suspect to be in court Monday
News

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The man who Santa Fe police say shot up a parked speed-enforcement SUV is set to make his first court hearing Monday afternoon.

Police say 63-year-old Scott Powell of Santa Fe faces firearms and felony criminal damage charges for the April 11 shooting.

He's also facing fleeing and felony assault charges from a police chase and standoff on Friday when officers tried to arrest him.

Attorney Dan Cron says he'll ask that his client be released on bond.

Police had a warrant with a $25,000 bond for the speed-vehicle shooting but the charges from the chase carry no bond.

Cron says Powell is being held in the general jail population.

He says his client has no criminal background and the experience is shocking for him.
