A 34-year-old Akron man — who authorities say fired shots at police and tried to carjack two drivers in the Sherbondy Hill neighborhood last month — faces a slew of federal charges.

Michael P. Johnson could spend 65 pears in prison if convicted on all counts. Johnson was a passenger in a Chevrolet Blazer Jan. 2 when officers tried to stop the SUV at East Avenue and Morse Road.

Police said that Johnson — who was wanted on several charges including resisting arrest — jumped out of the back seat of the SUV and opened fire on police.

Officers returned fire and Johnson then ran through a field where he tried to carjack someone in the parking lot of a Circle K on East Avenue, police said

The driver escaped by motoring away. Johnson, police said, also tried to carjack another driver before being struck by a police cruiser. The crash broke Johnson’s leg, police said.

“This incident is an example of the grave danger that the men and women of the Akron police department face every day in service to their community,” Akron Police Chief Ken Ball said Wednesday in a statement.

“We are pleased that the defendant will soon be made to answer for his behavior … that could have cost innocent bystanders and officers their lives.”

Johnson was indicted in federal court on several charges including assaulting law enforcement officers with a deadly weapon, discharging a firearm during a crime of violence; brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence, attempted carjacking and possessing methamphetamine.

He also fired a firearm in relation to his drug trafficking activity and possessed at least 50 grams of methamphetamine, according to the indictment.
