An officer at the front of the house heard a couple of shots and saw a front window shatter. Officers also reported hearing dozens of gunshots.
Four officers were moving behind two houses across the street from the Bramble house when more shots were fired. They were crossing an open space between the two homes when they heard three to five gunshots and the "whistle sound of a projectile near their position," according to the complaint.
They also reported hearing the projectile hitting trees and bushes behind them.
One officer fired back at Bramble but it wasn't clear if he hit him. No officers or bystanders were injured.
Multiple agencies responded, including the Kanawha Sheriff's Department's bomb squad. Sherwood Forest Road was blocked for hours while officers dealt with the delicate and dangerous situation.
The bomb squad sent its robot into the home to locate Bramble during a lull in the shooting. He was found injured but moving on the floor in a back room. The SWAT team then went into the home to secure him. Paramedics rushed him to CAMC General.
Bramble is listed as an assistant attorney general for the employment programs division in the state Attorney General's Office. He turned in his notice of resignation last week, but it was to go into effect Aug. 30. He was hired in June 2012 under former Attorney General Darrell McGraw, according to the Attorney General's office.
He is being held at South Central Regional Jail on $200,000 cash-only bond.
