Man Shot at Children's Hospital Appears in Court

A Milwaukee County judge has ordered the man who was shot and wounded by police at Children's Hospital in Wauwatosa to remain in custody.

Ashanti Hendricks appeared in court Tuesday, handcuffed to a wheelchair with his left arm and hand bandaged.  He's charged with bail jumping, possessing a gun as a felon and resisting an officer. 

Officers shot Hendricks twice inside the neo-natal unit of the hospital last Thursday.  Police say they received a tip that Hendricks was wanted for gun possession and was believed to be carrying a weapon in the hospital.

A criminal complaint says Hendricks was armed with a loaded semi-automatic weapon.
