FT. LAUDERDALE (CBS4) – A Lauderhill police officer accused of shooting at a fellow officer as she sat in her patrol car pleaded not guilty Wednesday morning during his arraignment hearing.
Kristopher Bieger, 30, is charged with first degree attempted murder of officer Brittny Skinner.
The shooting happened Saturday, Nov 12 around 7 p.m. in the 5500 block of Oakland Boulevard.
According to his arrest affidavit, Bieger fired 10 rounds into the car before taking off. Skinner, who was wearing a bullet proof vest, was not harmed; at least one bullet hit her in the vest. Bieger had dated Skinner for several months and but she had recently broken it off, according to police.
Court documents show Bieger had called two other officers and asked for at least one more bullet so he could kill himself.
After the shooting, Bieger fled and ended up at a Davie pizza restaurant in the 4800 block of Volunteer Road where the Davie police department’s Special Response Team took him into custody.
Bieger is suspended from the department without pay.
