LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The man accused of shooting a Shively police officer was arraigned Monday.

Kenneth Probus, 53, is charged with attempted murder after police say he shot Shively Police Detective Wes Singleton four times in the legs as he was serving a search warrant at a home on Edens Lane where Probus was staying on Jan. 8. 

Officers returned fire, injuring Probus, who was recovering at University Hospital until he was released. He made his court appearance on a stretcher.

A judge entered a plea of not guilty for Probus. 

Probus will continue his recovery at the state reformatory's hospital.

Officer Singleton is starting rehab, as he recovers from his injuries as well.

Probus's family says he thought someone was breaking into the home when he opened fire. 

Probus is being held on a $250,000 full cash bond.
