CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Bond has been lowered for a lawyer in the state Attorney General's Office who fired shots at police during a standoff.
Kanawha County Magistrate Jack Pauley lowered Mark Bramble's bond from $200,000 to $25,000 on Thursday.
WCHS-TV reports prosecutors argued against the reduction. Charleston Police Chief Brent Webster says he's concerned about public safety if Bramble posts bond.
Bramble faces wanton endangerment and attempted murder charges stemming from the Aug. 12 standoff in Charleston's South Hills neighborhood.
The week before, Bramble gave his notice that he would leave his job in the office's employment programs division in late August.
