The parolee who allegedly shot at police at Gough and Ellis streets during the middle of the morning commute two years ago was ordered to stand trial Monday on attempted murder and assault and firearm charges.

Roselyndo Sicat, 40, was approached by plainclothes officers about 8 a.m. on June 29, 2011 as he was pulling out of a garage. When officers identified themselves, police said, he pulled out a handgun and fired at least one shot. The officers were not hit and returned fire, wounding Sicat.

Sicat attempted to drive off but crashed into a parked car.

At the time of the shooting, Sicat was a parolee who was wanted for allegedly firing off an assault rifle in the same area a few days before he shot at police.

Two weapons, including an assault rifle, were found in the crashed car, police said.

Gough Street, a major traffic artery, was shut down for hours while police investigated the shooting.

Sicat will return to court on June 4 to be formally arraigned on the charges, Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian said.
