SPOKANE-- A man accused of attempted murder in Spokane Valley earlier this year made his first appearance in court Monday.

29 year old Jarrod Veilleux was in court more than three months after he was arrested in Montana.

Veilleux is accused of shooting a man in late February. He and another man were arrested on charges of attempted murder, assault, and illegal possession of a fire arm.

Spokane Valley Police responded to a shooting call outside the Oasis Tavern a few months ago. When officers got to the scene they found an adult male with a gunshot wound in his abdomen.

Court documents state the victim, Aaron Haymond, can testify he was shot in the stomach while sitting on a couch in the smoking area.

Veilleux has more than 20 felonies and more than 30 misdemeanors.

The judge set bail ay $500,000.

Prosecutors have lined up multiple witnesses who were either at the bar or working there that night.

The victim described the shooter to investigators as a man in his mid 20s to mid 30s that was about six feet tall. He was described as skinny with a goatee.

32-year-old Terrence Riley was also arrested in this case but did not appear in court Monday.

Arraignment has been set for Veilleux on July 12th.
