A judge said no to a reduction in bond for Allen Kruk, who is accused of shooting a La Crosse police officer during a confrontation Aug. 3.

Judge Elliott Levine turned down Kruk’s request to have his $50,000 cash bond lowered, so he can spend time with his child before going to prison.

The case has not been set for trial yet, and Kruk has not found an attorney through the public defender’s office. 

The 34-year-old Kruk is charged with attempted murder for shooting La Crosse Officer Dustin Darling in the chest. Darling was wearing an armored vest. 

Kruk was also shot by the officer, and spent several days in the hospital afterward.
