"This is the last night that you are going to live. If you try to run, I'll shoot you. If you call the police I'll have a shootout."
Those threats were allegedly uttered to a woman by a man who wounded a police officer in Abington during an exchange of gunfire about 1 o'clock this morning, according to authorities.
Leon Bailado, 22, was charged today with the atempted murder of Officer Robert Davis, a 10-year veteran of the Abington police force.
After being wounded in the leg, Davis was treated at Abington Memorial Hospital.
Bailado, who suffered several gunshot wounds, was treated there for non-life-threating injuries.
Apparently, the defendant and the unnamed woman got into an argument in Philadelphia, during which he made the threats, according to a statement released by Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman and Abington Police Chief William J. Kelly.
She sought safety at her parent's house in the 2000 block of Cross Road in the Baederwood section.
Acting on reports of a man armed with a gun, Davis went to the rear of the house, where Bailado fired a handgun at the officer, authorities said.
Davis and another officer returned fire, wounding Bailado.
The defendant faces a variety of additional charges related to the incident.
