Court documents say 29-year-old Wisner Desmaret was fleeing officer Adam Jobbers-Miller after stealing a cellphone July 21 when he appeared to surrender. Investigators say video from the officer's body camera shows Desmaret then lunged at Jobbers-Miller, knocking him onto his back. They say Desmaret pulled the officer's gun from his belt and shot him.
Police say he then taunted other officers and fled before being shot.
A grand jury indicted Desmaret on Friday of first-degree murder and other charges, including grand theft and aggravated assault on an officer.
He's being held without bond until a first appearance Saturday. It's unclear if he had an attorney.
If convicted, he could face death or life in prison.
