Kingman plan pleads innocent to burglary charges

A Kingman man, shot by police Nov.

22 after a brief chase, pleaded innocent to two felony charges Monday in Mohave County Superior Court.

David James DeHerrera, his neck bandaged, pleaded innocent to third-degree burglary and theft of means of transportation.

Judge Steve Conn affirmed DeHerrera's $10,000 bond from Kingman Justice Court.

DeHerrera also made his initial appearance in justice court Friday, charged with attempted burglary, unlawful flight, two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of criminal damage, all felonies.

Prosecutors expect him to be indicted Thursday by a grand jury on those charges.

DeHerrera, 25, was stopped in the 3100 block of Northfield Avenue after a Mohave County sheriff's deputy responded to a call of a possible vehicle burglary in progress.

DeHerrera has been charged with stealing a pickup truck and then using it to try to run over the deputy.

The deputy fired at DeHerrera, wounding him in the neck, according to police reports.

A second deputy who responded to the scene fired at DeHerrera.

The second shot missed.

Police accuse DeHerrera of fleeing arrest and going to a residence near Fairfax and Wilshire avenues, where he got a ride from an unidentified person to Kingman Regional Medical Center.

Deputies arrested DeHerrera at the hospital, where he underwent surgery for the gunshot wound.

Neither deputy involved in the incident was injured.
