A Clinton man, accused of trying to kill a police officer, is one step closer to trial. 59-year-old Terrance Robinson is accused of attempted first degree intentional homicde after an incident at his apartment. During a preliminary hearing in Rock County Court Tuesday morning, Sheriff's Detective Richard Kamholz outlined the events unfolding last May between Robinson and Clinton police officer Dave Hooker. Kamholz testified he talked to Terrance Robinson in the hospital, shortly after the incident. Robinson is accused of taking officer Hooker's gun during a struggle, then pointing the gun at Hooker's chest, and pulling the trigger six to eight times. Training may have saved Hooker from being shot. He held back the slide to prevent the weapon from firing. Robinson was bound over for trial. He'll be back in court to plead to the charges Tuesday, August 20th. He's currenlty being held in the Rock County jail.
