Trial set for man accused of firing at police

Spells

A man accused of firing a gun at a Fort Wayne police officer has been found competent to stand trial.

Allen County Superior Judge Fran Gull made the ruling Wednesday and scheduled an early June trial for Daniel Spells.

Spells, 33, of the 2100 block of Asquith Drive, is charged with attempted murder, carrying a handgun without a license, criminal recklessness, resisting law enforcement and being a habitual offender.

Spells was charged in May after he allegedly pulled a handgun and fired several rounds at an officer at close range. The shots missed the officer, who was able to disarm Spells without drawing his own weapon, according to court documents.

Spells has a lengthy criminal history that includes convictions for carrying a handgun without a license and resisting law enforcement.
