ST. GEORGE (AP) An Enterprise man shot and injured by police in April will stand trial on aggravated assault and drug charges.
Michael Dennis Loeffel was shot twice on April 28 during a domestic dispute.
Police say they kicked down the door of a home after Loeffel prevented a woman inside from leaving. Officers say they opened fire because Loeffel was crouched down with a rifle and appeared ready to shoot them.
Prosecutors later charged Loeffel with three counts of aggravated assault, obstruction of justice, unlawful detention, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and disorderly conduct. Last week, a 5th District judge said there's enough evidence to send Loeffel to trial.
