FOND DU LAC – A man who allegedly fired at an officer and set fire to a home pleaded not guilty Tuesday.

Shannon Rogler faces six charges, including attempted first-degree intentional homicide and arson for the Dec. 9 events.

Rogler was arrested following a five-hour standoff that followed a suspicious house fire nearby. According to the criminal complaint, Rogler previously owned the foreclosed, vacant home that burned. Police say during the standoff, Rogler fired at an officer but missed. The complaint states Rogler told investigators he could have killed the officer if he wanted to but didn’t, because the officer was probably a father.

No trial date was set. Rogler returns to court July 16.
