A man accused of shooting a police officer in Brooklyn earlier this year appeared in court Tuesday.
Rashaun Robinson is charged with multiple counts of attempted murder, along with charges of assault on a police officer and criminal weapons possession.
He allegedly shot rookie officer James Li in the leg while Li and his partner were trying to bust Robinson for evading a bus fare.
"So we'll sit quietly in these pews as a fair trial is put forward, but we're confident the evidence will say guilty, and then from there, we'll be confident, and we hope, that this mope is put behind bars," said Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association.
A number of police officers, including Li's partner, attended Tuesday's hearing to show solidarity.
Li was released from Kings County Hospital in February.
