Witness: NH man said he would 'take out a cop'
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- A witness told police the New Hampshire man charged with attempted murder in the shooting of an officer had said he would "take out a cop" if he was ever arrested.
Police say 22-year-old Myles Webster of Litchfield shot Officer Daniel Doherty multiple times on March 21 in Manchester. Doherty suffered wounds to the legs and torso; he is recovering at a hospital.
During a court hearing Wednesday, police Det. Patrick Houghton testified a woman who was with Webster in a car that day said he was acting argumentative. He said if he was arrested, he would go to jail for life and would "take out a cop" if police ever came to arrest him.
Webster's lawyers will argue to have Webster's $1 million bail reduced, calling it excessive.
