(KAIR)--The man accused of shooting at an Atchison Police Officer last week has formally been arrested.

According to a news release issued Monday night by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, 44-year-old Bryan Boldridge, of Atchison, was arrested Monday evening.

He was taken into custody after being released from the University of Kansas Medical Center, in Kansas City, Kansas.

Boldridge has been hospitalized at that location since October 31, transported there with injuries he incurred after he was shot by the officer.

According to the release, Boldridge was arrested by the KBI, and the the medical center's police department, on a warrant charging him with attempted second degree murder.

Once he was in custody, Boldridge was booked into the Wyandotte County Jail.

He's held on a $150,000 bond.

According to the KBI, the shooting happened after the Atchison Police Officer was called to a residence at North 4th and L Street due to a report of theft of services.

Police Chief Mike Wilson told MSC News the officer was there to assist a utility company with that issue.

The KBI, in a news release issued after the shooting, said that although Boldridge put down a rifle he was carrying when the officer arrived, he later drew a handgun and fired when the officer attempted to taze him after a verbal conflict escalated.

The officer was not struck and suffered no injuries.

According to the KBI Monday, the investigation is ongoing, but once concluded, the findings will be turned over to the Atchison County Attorney's Office for review.

The release concludes by saying that “further information related to this investigation will come from the County Attorney's Office.”

The Atchison City Commission Monday met in executive session to discuss matters related to the shooting.

No information related to their discussion has been made public.
