The man arrested in connection with last week’s shooting incidents, bonded out of jail in another case days before last Wednesday’s incidents. Flagstaff Police arrested 33-year-old Alan French, after he fired gunshots in two different areas. French, and another man, came out of a wooded area, fired a gun multiple times and fled down the urban trail in the area of Brannen Circle and Lone Tree. About two hours later, police were called to the Bushmaster Park area after several witnesses told police a Native American man fired at several people. He also demanded a cigarette from a group and fired shots at the ground. No one was injured in either incident. French was arrested a short time later in the area of Fourth Street and Sixth Avenue. According to court reports, French paid a $250 bond days before the recent shootings after he was arrested and charged with assault with intent or knowingly cause injury, disorderly conduct fighting and resisting arrest. He has a long criminal record, that has had French in prison on three different occasions. French has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault with deadly weapon, one count of armed robbery with a deadly weapon, disorderly conduct with a deadly weapon and possession of a weapon by a prohibited person from last week’s incidents. He is currently being held on a $250-thousand cash bond. A preliminary hearing is set for Thursday morning at Flagstaff Justice Court.
