UTICA — A Verona man accused of shooting at police officers appeared briefly Thursday morning in Oneida County Court.

Justin Carter is charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder of a police officer, reckless endangerment and menacing of a police officer — all felonies — and misdemeanor possession of a weapon. He pleaded not guilty to the charges last month.

Carter was involved in an Aug. 9 standoff with state police. Troopers then responded for a suicidal subject possibly armed inside a barn behind his home. Carter fired several shots from at least two sides of the barn, authorities said. No one was injured.

Carter's attorney said Wednesday in court that he couldn't determine how to proceed until a doctor's report was returned to him. The delay in receiving the report was partly due to a need to obtain and review Carter's 14 years of military service, he said.

Carter's next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 14.
