A 21-year-old Taunton man is being held on $100,000 cash bail for allegedly pointing a loaded handgun at a Plymouth police officer.

Trevor Wood was arraigned Tuesday in his hospital room at Mass General Hospital. He suffered injuries after being shot by a fellow Plymouth officer.

According to authorities, Plymouth police received a call Sunday night that several people with guns were on Forest Avenue.

When officers arrived, they stopped a Ford Van that was traveling on Forest Avenue. Wood allegedly jumped out of the rear passenger door with a bandana over his face and a gun in his hand.

Police demanded that he drop the gun but Wood refused.

When he pointed his .40-caliber Glock pistol at a Plymouth officer he was immediately shot.

Wood is facing three charges including assault with intent to murder. A pre-trial conference has been scheduled for July 25th.
