WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The man accused of firing a shot at a security guard at a Wichita store is charged with four counts of aggravated assault.

Jake Jacobs, 27, was charged Wednesday, two days after he shot at the guard and pointed his gun at three other people at a Burlington Coat Factory store. The guard and customers were not injured.

Jacobs is being held on $100,000 bond. His attorney, Mark Schoenhofer, filed a request to have the bond reduced so Jacobs can be treated for a broken jaw and teeth he suffered when he was arrested

The Wichita Eagle reports that Schoenhofer is disputing police claims that Jacobs resisted arrest.

Deputy Chief Tom Stolz says police used force after Jacobs refused to comply with several orders and scuffled with officers.
