An Albertville man is behind bars after police say he tried to kill two of their officers.

German Munoz Lopez, 32, is charged with two counts of attempted murder of a police officer stemming from a December 7 shooting at a mobile home park.

Police say Lopez was the person of interest in the shooting, which happened at 3 a.m. at the Kilpatrick Trailer Park. Officers say they found a group of people in a park, and Lopez pulled out a gun and started shooting.

While officers returned fire, no one was hit during the incident.

Lopez was transferred to the Marshall County Jail where he is being held on a $1 million bond. He also has an immigration detainer from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The State Bureau of Investigation is also looking into the shooting.
