A man charged with trying to kill a Fayetteville police officer is now behind bars.

Police arrested Herman Harris Tuesday afternoon after spending the last three weeks trying to track him down.

The 38 year old is charged with attempted first-degree murder and assault on a law enforcement officer with a firearm.

He's accused of firing the gun that left Officer Zachary Pittman wounded on Aug. 26.

Police said Harris shot Pittman after the two were involved in a skirmish at an apartment complex off of Covenwood Drive.
