Preliminary hearing waived for York man accused of shooting at deputy

  • 0

YORK, Neb. — A felony case in which Max McCall, 26, of York is accused of shooting at a sheriff's deputy has been sent to District Court.

McCall appeared in York County District Court on Tuesday with his attorney, York County Public Defender Nancy Waldron, for a preliminary hearing. Waldron waived the hearing, and the felony case will automatically move to the higher court.

On Aug. 11, McCall allegedly threatened a family member with a gun. A deputy with the York County Sheriff's Office was on his way to the scene when he saw McCall's vehicle and attempted to stop him. A short pursuit followed, resulting in McCall's vehicle going into the ditch of a rural road.

McCall is accused of, after exiting the vehicle, firing a rifle twice at the deputy. The deputy returned fire, and McCall was hit twice.

McCall was taken to a Lincoln hospital, where he was initially listed in critical condition. He has since recovered and is formally charged with six felonies.

The charges are: attempted first-degree assault on an officer, use of a firearm to commit a felony, flight to avoid arrest, possession of a firearm to commit a felony, committing terroristic threats and another count of use of a firearm to commit a felony.

If convicted on all counts, McCall could faces a maximum of 210 years in prison.
