RICHMOND -- A man shot by Richmond Police on Feb. 11 was charged Wednesday with attempted murder of a police officer and weapons charges, Richmond Police said.
Richmond Det. Nicole Abetkov said Elston Young Jr., 30, remains hospitalized and has a bail of $1.2 million.
The Contra Costa County District Attorney also charged Young, a San Francisco resident, with being a felon in possession of a firearm and for negligent discharge of a firearm, Abetkov said.
Abetkov said Young, who was shot at least six times by officers, continues to recover in an undisclosed hospital and is not paralyzed or suffering brain trauma.
"The charges are filed," Abetkov said. "We expect to have him booked in the next couple of days."
Officers confronted Young on the sidewalk at 4:57 p.m. behind St. Johns Apartments at Nevin Avenue and B Street, after several 911 callers reported seeing an armed man in the area and police ShotSpotter technology detected shots at the location.
The incident was the first officer-involved shooting in Richmond since December 2011, when police shot and wounded a man after a witness reported him carrying a gun at a hotel near Hilltop Mall.
