MAY 8, 2005 -- A man shot by Wilmington police officers over the weekend is asking for an attorney.

Roy Smith faced a judge Monday in a hearing made possible by a video link between the courthouse and the jail.

Smith, who limped to his chair, asked the court to give him a lawyer.

He was shot in the thigh by police officers after a brief confrontation. The officers say Smith refused to drop his gun.

Smith has been charged with assaulting a police officer and several other crimes.
