SKOWHEGAN — The Hartland man accused of firing multiple shots at a Waterville police officer and other law enforcement officers who pursued him in December has been indicted on 19 counts, including aggravated attempted murder, aggravated assault and reckless conduct with a firearm.

Richard Murray-Burns, 30, was shot multiple times by police Dec. 22 in Canaan after he allegedly shot at a police officer. The officer, Timothy Hinton, was shot in both arms.

Murray-Burns allegedly shot at Hinton on Main Street, between Waterville and Fairfield, and led officers on a chase that ended in Canaan.

Hinton responded to a report of shoplifting at Walmart in Waterville and stopped a vehicle on Main Street, where he was shot while still inside his cruiser. A chase ensued, and Murray-Burns was shot multiple times by police near the intersection of Routes 2 and 23.

Murray-Burns was indicted Feb. 27 by a Somerset County grand jury on 12 counts of aggravated attempted murder, two counts of aggravated assault and one count each of failure to stop for an officer, reckless conduct with a firearm, robbery and theft.

District Attorney Maeghan Maloney of Kennebec and Somerset counties said the case will be treated with “the serious attention that it deserves.” Murray-Burns is being held in lieu of $1 million cash bail and is scheduled to be arraigned March 19.
