A Silverhill man is in custody facing attempted murder charges after police say he shot at an officer Tuesday night.
Daniel Wade Hails, 56, of 21348 Bohemian Hall Road was arrested Wednesday morning following a 6-hour standoff at his residence, said Silverhill Police Chief Kim Wasdin.
An officer with the Silverhill Police Department responded to a report of shots fired at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday at the residence.
“The officer turned on his lights in the driveway to identify himself and approached the privacy fence leading to the residence which was locked,” Wasdin said. “He saw a man inside the residence and identified himself to the man. The man waved at him, then turned, picked up a rifle, aimed it at him and fired.”
