MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A plea hearing is postponed for the Milwaukee man who prompted a lockdown of a children's hospital after flashing a gun at police.
Twenty-two-year-old Ashanti Len Hendricks was scheduled to enter a plea Wednesday. But his hearing was postponed to April 7 after defense attorney Gerald Boyle cited a family emergency.
Boyle also filed a request to withdraw from the case.
Hendricks faces charges including child abuse and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Police were tipped off in November that Hendricks had a warrant out and was at that moment at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, near Milwaukee.
Officers approached Hendricks, who dropped the 2-month-old baby he was holding and fled down a hallway. Police shot him in the arm after they say he refused to drop his gun.
