Twenty-nine-year-old Gary Jackson was back in court on Tuesday on charges of attempted murder and use of a weapon to commit a felony after allegedly stabbing an Omaha police officer.

Jackson allegedly stabbed 51-year-old Officer Sophia Jordan, a 14-year veteran of the force back in June.

In court on Tuesday, the prosecution laid out their case against Jackson.

According to a witness who testified, Jordan and a fellow officer were called to the Cubby's at 42nd & Redman when Jackson showed up there, after he had previously been banned, and would not leave.

Officer Jordan allegedly approached Jackson, and he reportedly started swinging his arms. Prosecutors believe Jackson knocked Jordan down and stabbed her in the shoulder. Officer Jordan then reportedly kicked Jackson, knocking him down on the ground, as well.

The second officer ran over and allegedly saw Jackson with a knife. He demanded Jackson to the ground at gunpoint, and Jackson allegedly said, "I'm sorry, I shouldn't have done it."

Jordan was stabbed where her patch is on the shoulder of her uniform, the knife was an 11 inch folding knife, with at 5 1/2 inch blade.

Jordan is still recovering, but has yet to regain full use of her shoulder, according to prosecutors.

Jackson will be bound over to district court for trial.
