Facing an attempted murder charge, 100 Mile House area resident Phillip Thomas May appeared in a Williams Lake courtroom Sept. 17.

A date for a focus hearing, which will determine the direction the court case will take, was set for Nov. 13 in 100 Mile House.

The 59-year-old is also facing other charges, following a shooting incident and police chase on May 31.

Around 8:25 a.m., 100 Mile House RCMP members responded to a complaint about a male being in distress at a 93 Mile Loop Road residence, and they found a 39-year-old man who had been shot.

May was identified as the suspect and officers went to a Lone Butte area residence to arrest him. When they arrived, officers confirmed May was present and they set up containment areas around the residence because they believed he was armed.

May fled the residence, hopped into a vehicle and sped away.

RCMP members were able to effectively deploy a spike belt, but after May drove over it, he continued driving on the rims.

Officers ended the chase by executing a precision immobilization technique on the getaway vehicle causing May to lose control and stop.
