EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- Charges are now filed against the man police say was in an officer-involved shooting.
46-year-old Paul Lynch faces several counts including attempted first-degree intentional homicide and possession of a firearm by a felon.
In January, deputies responded to Lynch's home near Eau Claire for a domestic disturbance. According to the criminal complaint, Lynch came out of the home with a rifle. Deputy Dustin Walters told Lynch several times to put his weapon down and shined a light on him. The complaint says Lynch fired several shots at Walters, who was knelt behind a tree, and continued to walk towards him. Walters then fired back until Lynch fell to the ground.
Lynch was taken to a hospital for his injuries. A blood test showed he had a BAC of .215.
