INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) – A man who prosecutors say tried to kill a police officer is eligible for bond after a hearing in the courtroom of Marion County Supreme Court Judge Lisa Borges.

Bond is set at $200,000 for suspect William Allen.

One of the conditions is he would not be able to bond out until after May 24, 2019 and then he would have to have a GPS Monitoring Device so a probation contractor/worker can track his whereabouts.

Allen’s charges include attempted murder, disarming a law enforcement officer resulting in injury and resisting law enforcement along with a charge stemming from previous violations.

His trial is set for 9 a.m. on July 8, 2019 in Judge Borges courtroom.

IMPD arrested William Allen, 40, for the attempted murder of IMPD Officer Eric Rosenbaum.

Allen is a registered violent sexual predator with a lengthy criminal history in four states, according to metro police.

The shooting happened near East 25th Street and North Post Road on Sunday, May 5.

Police say Rosenbaum was responding to a call for a shoplifter at Lowe's near 25th and Post Road.

Rosenbaum reportedly saw Allen running and chased him down. That's when police say their officer and Allen fought and officer Rosenbaum suffered a gunshot wound.
