Fla. Officer Allegedly Fires Shot at Colleague

LAUDERHILL, Fla. (AP) — A South Florida police officer is being without bond on a charge of attempted first-degree murder after allegedly firing a shot at another officer.

The shot missed. Thirty-year-old Lauderhill Police Officer Kristopher John Bieger also faces a charge of discharging a firearm from a vehicle.

According to Capt. Constance Stanley, the shooting occurred Saturday evening. Bieger was taken into custody later Saturday night by officers from the nearby Davie police department and turned over to Lauderhill.

No other details about the shooting were immediately available. The other officer’s name was not released.

Broward County jail records did not show whether Bieger had an attorney.

Bieger joined the Lauderhill police department in October 2006. Officials said the other officer also has been on the force for a few years.
