Woman tells KRDO she saw Frank Goad fire gun at police


A man accused of firing a gun at police officers and trying to carjack a driver made his first appearance in court Friday.

Frank Goad is facing charges of attempted first degree murder of a police officer and attempted aggravated robbery. His bond was set at $525,000.

The alleged crimes happened Tuesday evening near Goose Gossage Park. 

The hunt for Frank Goad started around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday near a storage unit off of Mark Dabling Boulevard after police received a report of shots fired.

Police say that when they arrived, Goad, 54, fired his gun at them and then took off running.

Police say they think Goad tried to steal a man's car as he was trying to get away. The would-be victim refused to leave his car, and Goad continued running on foot.

On Friday, Colorado Springs Police confirmed Goad is also the primary suspect in an armed robbery at a 7-Eleven on Hancock Expressway Wednesday night.
