LOS ANGELES (AP) - A man who allegedly shot up a Los Angeles police station, wounding an officer, has been charged with attempted murder.

City News Service says 29-year-old Daniel Yealu was charged Thursday with two felony counts but it's unclear when he'll appear in court. He was wounded in a shootout with two officers Monday night at the West Traffic Division and remains hospitalized.

Yealu, a onetime security guard, applied to join the LAPD in 2009 but was rejected. Police say he walked into the station, told the desk officer, "I have a complaint," and opened fire with a handgun.

The wounded officer is out of the hospital. The other officer wasn't hurt.

Authorities say they found an assault rifle in Yealu's car and a cache of weapons and ammunition at his home.
