Bond was denied on Friday for an 18-year-old Austin man who faces attempted murder charges after being shot by a Chicago Police officer in the West Side neighborhood on Wednesday.

Kayin Wise was at the wheel of a stolen car when he rammed it into a bystander’s vehicle, pinning the officer between that vehicle and his own squad car about 11:15 a.m. in an alley in the 1600 block of North Leclaire, according to police. Wise had tried to speed away from a traffic stop, police said.

The officer, who suffered severe damage to his right leg, then shot Wise at least twice, police said.

Wise was taken to a hospital in serious condition. The officer was treated and released later in the day.

Wise, who was also charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, aggravated battery to a peace officer and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, remained hospitalized on Saturday morning. A judge ordered him held without bond, court records show.

His next court date is Tuesday.
