Michael Lamarr Taylor, an 18-year-old from the 1100 block of Aubert, has been charged with firing a gun at bicycle cops in the Fountain Park neighborhood on November 9.

According to the probable cause statement, a pair of uniformed officers were working as secondaries in the Central West End when they heard gunfire coming from a couple blocks away.

They rode their bikes to the 700 block of North Euclid Avenue, which is just north of Delmar Boulevard.

As they approached, they saw Taylor point his gun at them and fire a couple shots. He missed, and tried to run away. But they were able to "subdue" him.

Lamarr has been charged with two counts of assaulting an officer, two counts of armed criminal action and one count of resisting arrest. All are felonies.
