An Arizona man was charged Wednesday with more than a half-dozen felony counts, including the attempted murder of two LAPD officers during a gun battle, authorities said.
Kirkham Gastelum, 30, was also charged with robbery in connection with the holdup of a medical marijuana dispensary, two counts of second-degree robbery, one count of second-degree commercial burglary and two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office said.
He was expected to be arraigned Wednesday afternoon in Van Nuys.
Prosecutors said they would ask the judge to set Gastelum's bail at $2.4 million. If convicted of all counts, he faces a maximum sentence of up to life in prison.
A second suspect, Tyler Gilson, 23, also of Arizona, was arrested, but released after posting bail. Prosecutors said they expect to charge him in the case.
