SHARE Virginia man appears in court in the shooting of BYU officer

A Virginia man accused of shooting a Brigham Young University police officer during a multi-state crime spree made his first appearance in 4th District Court Tuesday.

Carl Douglas Consolvo, 38, appeared before Judge Lynn W. Davis, who set a waiver hearing for July 10. Davis didn't allow bail to be set for Consolvo, who was captured in Henderson, Nev., in June and booked into the Utah County Jail Friday.Consolvo has been charged with attempted aggravated murder, a first-degree felony, in connection with the shooting of BYU Police Sgt. David Adams on May 20. Adams was not seriously injured despite the fact that six rounds from a 9 mm handgun struck him or his vehicle.

Consolvo is also a suspect in the robbery of three Utah County banks the same day Adams was shot, although related charges have yet to be filed in U.S. District Court.

Authorities suspect Consolvo in crimes ranging from aggravated assault to car-jacking in several states during a crime spree that began in January. He was arrested in a Henderson motel just days after being profiled for the second time on the television program "America's Most Wanted."
