Man accused of shooting Sheriff’s deputy pleads not guilty

Crime

FRESNO, California – The man accused of shooting a Fresno County Sheriff’s deputy during a land dispute last week pleaded not guilty in court Monday.

Michael Congdon’s bail was set at $2.46 million.

He’s charged with two counts of attempted murder, assault on a peace officer with semi-automatic firearm, shooting at an inhabited motor vehicle, felony animal cruelty and various firearm charges.

Deputy John Erickson was responding to a call of shots fired that stemmed from a property dispute.

Erickson is still in the hospital recovering from surgery.

This weekend, Sheriff Margaret Mims paid him a visit. She says he continues to make remarkable progress and is thankful for the continued prayers, kindness and support he’s received from the community.

Congdon is expected back in court Friday.
