He also told the judge his court-appointed lawyers do not represent him.
Edward Archer, 32, is charged with the attempted murder of Officer Jesse Hartnett, who was shot point blank when Archer approached his police car with a weapon and fired 13 times.
Hartnett took three bullets in his left arm but was able to kick open his car door and chase Archer. One of the seven shots fired by Hartnett hit Archer in the buttocks. Officers who were nearby heard Hartnett’s call for help arrested him.
Authorities say Archer later confessed that he shot the police officer in the name of Islam and was motivated by his devotion to Allah and ISIS.
Hartlett’s arm was shattered by the gunshots, leaving him unable to work as a police officer. He has undergone 11 surgeries since the shooting, which occurred on the night of January 7, 2016.
After his arrest, it was reported the FBI was looking into two trips Archer made to the Middle East – one to Saudi Arabia in 2011 and another to Egypt a year later.
The judge entered a plea of not guilty for Archer.
