A man shot by a Bellevue police officer last week has been charged with theft by receiving and flight to avoid arrest.

Chief Deputy Sarpy County Attorney Tricia Freeman said bail for 29-year-old Anthony Adams was set Tuesday at $100,000. He would have to post 10 percent to be released.

Sarpy County prosecutors are looking at filing additional charges. Freeman said an investigative team handling the shooting met Tuesday and planned to meet again Thursday.

Freeman has said that 14-year police veteran Larry Schwartz fired three shots through the car door Friday, striking Adams in both legs.

Adams was released from the hospital Sunday.

Officials said that Adams was trying to flee from Bellevue officers, driving toward them as they approached the stolen car he was driving.

Adams was later apprehended at another Bellevue apartment building.
