A man wanted in the shooting of a New York City Police Department sergeant has been formally charged after turning himself in over the weekend.
Investigators say John Thomas, 24, surrendered Sunday with his attorney at a parking lot in Jamaica.
He is charged with second degree attempted murder, criminal weapons possession and assault.
Thomas is accused of shooting Sergeant Craig Bier in the legs on August 8.
Bier was shot as he and his partner chased a man who was acting suspiciously near 107th Avenue and Union Hall Street in Jamaica.
According to reports, police traced a set of keys dropped at the scene back to Thomas and launched a multi-state manhunt for him.
