REDFIELD — A warrant has been issued for Randall Jungwirth, a man from the Redfield area, who shot twice at a highway patrolman after he was pulled over in a routine traffic stop Monday.
After stopping for trooper Brian Korbel on Monday, Jungwirth pointed a Browning Light 12 gauge shotgun at the officer’s head and pulled the trigger twice, said Spink County’s State Attorney Vic Fischbach. Jungwirth then fled the scene after a struggle ensued with the officer who attempted to secure the weapon.
Fischbach, has asked anyone that sees Jungwirth, or knows of his whereabouts, to call 911 immediately. Anyone that assists Jungwirth will be charged with a felony for harboring a fugitive as well as numerous other charges. Jungwirth could be armed and is considered dangerous, so do not attempt to confront him.
Fischbach is urging Spink County residents to remove all hunting weapons from their vehicles, lock their doors and don’t leave vehicles unattended.
Jungwirth faces an aggravated assault charge, a Class 3 felony.
A bond was set in the amount of $100,000 for his arrest.For the complete article see the 11-07-2012 issue.
