ST. CLOUD -- The jury trial for a man who fired gunshots at police is underway in Stearns County Court this week.

27-year-old Frank Bammert is charged with two counts of first degree assault and one count of possessing a pistol or assault weapon after a previous violent crime conviction.

Stearns County Criminal Division Chief Mike Lieberg says he expects testimony to continue today.

Police responded to the scene back in August 2010 after witnesses reported Bammert was firing gunshots outside of his St. Cloud apartment.

Bammert is accused of firing several rounds at police who then fired back, hitting Bammert in the head and neck during the standoff.
