After a week on the run, the only suspect in last week’s shooting went before a judge Tuesday.
The Cassgram reports 64-year-old Steven I. Harrod of Louisville is charged with three counts: assault in the first degree (Class II Felony), use of a firearm to commit a felony (Class IC Felony), and possession of a firearm by prohibited person (Class ID Felony).
Cash bond was set at $250,000.
Harrod is accused of shooting a tenant in the face at Harrod’s Louisville house on Monday, January 14th. Harrod’s name was broadcast on police scanners as the suspect just a few minutes after the shooting. He originally went to Lincoln where his truck was found a few hours later.
The search then expanded out of state.
Harrod’s whereabouts were learned and federal authorities coordinated the arrest planning. Harrod was taken into custody without incident in a shed near a small town in southwest Missouri on Sunday night. The beard that he had in the mug shot photo authorities distributed after the shooting had been shaved. He was returned to Nebraska on Monday by two Cass County sheriff’s investigators who were there when Harrod was arrested.
Harrod’s next scheduled court appearance is a preliminary hearing in Cass County Court on February 14th.
