A man accused of killing a highway maintenance worker and shooting an Louisville Metro Police sergeant in the face is being held under a $1 million bond.
Wednesday morning, 25 year-old Keyshaun Stewart appeared before a judge for the first time since being released from the hospital Tuesday evening.
According to reports, last Friday Stewart walked up to a highway maintenance vehicle on the Watterson Expressway (I-264) near the Dixie Highway overpass. He then fired through the window, killing Fred O’Bannon, a father of five.
Stewart then turned his attention to an off-duty LMPD vehicle and shot Sgt. Chris Lane in the face. Despite being shot, Lane chased Stewart and fired, striking him. Lane is now recovering after surgery.
During his arraignment, prosecutors argued Stewart – who showed up in a wheelchair to appear on charges of murder, attempted murder and attempted assault of an officer and other charges – was a flight risk and a danger to the community.
