PRESCOTT VALLEY, Arizona - The man shot by a police officer when he allegedly pointed a gun at the officer in March has been returned to Yavapai County and has been charged with 20 felony counts.
Officers responding to a 911 call reporting a domestic violence incident involving a gun on March 9 were setting up a perimeter when Jeremy Wolf appeared at the back door and allegedly pointed a gun at Officer John Van Gundy, Prescott Valley Police Department spokesman Gene McFarland said.
Van Gundy fired on Wolf when Wolf raised his gun, McFarland said.
Officers checking the house for other possible suspects found another man inside with a wound to the neck that was determined to be the result of an assault.
Wolf, 42, was flown to John C. Lincoln-North Mountain hospital in Phoenix. He was released last week and taken to a Maricopa County jail. He has since been transferred to the Camp Verde jail.
Wolf was charged with aggravated assault, aggravated assault with strangulation, child abuse per domestic violence, four counts of disorderly conduct, endangerment, theft, misconduct involving weapons, and other charges relating to a 2012 case, according to information provided by YCSO spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn.
Wolf, of Prescott Valley, has convictions for aggravated DUI, endangerment, and attempted unlawful use of a means of transportation in Yavapai County Superior Court, a search of court records showed.
