JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The pretrial hearing for the man accused of shooting an undercover Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office detective three times in front of his son was moved. 

Kevin Rojas is accused of shooting a detective in 2016 when the detective pulled him over while driving his 12-year-old son to school in March.

Rojas' hearing on Wednesday in the Duval Court Courthouse was moved to Jan. 24. The public defender said he needed more time to review this case. 

Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said as soon as that officer stepped out of the car, Rojas began firing.

Rojas is facing multiple charges, including attempted murder, aggravated assault on an officer and grand theft auto. He pleaded not guilty on all seven counts.
