PROVIDENCE — A 31-year-old Providence man who is accused of opening fire on a Providence police officer with an AR-15 was arraigned on 16 counts early Thursday afternoon in District Court, Providence.
Judge Terence Houlihan ordered Luis Roman held without bail.
Roman is charged with attempted murder in an assault on Providence police officer Robert Savage.
Roman, who was previously convicted of assault with a dangerous weapon, is due at a violation hearing in Superior Court, Providence.
He is accused of assaulting his girlfriend, maliciously damaging property at her home, recklessly engaging in fighting or threatening behavior at the house.
He is charged with possession of a firearm after being convicted of a crime of violence as well as possession of a firearm with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of a stolen firearm, and carrying an AR-15 without a license.
Roman, of 53 Sears Ave., is charged with assaulting his girlfriend with an AR-15 and with impeding her breathing by putting pressure on her throat.
Roman was arrested Wednesday by a tactical team, several hours after he opened fire on a police officer as he arrived at the scene of a domestic incident on Canton Street, according to authorities.
No pleas were entered.
