LINCOLN COUNTY, TN (WAFF) -

The man accused of shooting two policemen in 2011 is officially charged with attempted murder.

A Lincoln County grand jury indicted Joseph Shriver this week on several charges, including first degree attempted murder.

Investigators said Shriver shot Fayetteville policeman Justin Raby and Madison County deputy Brent Beavers during a two-state manhunt in November of 2011.

Both of the victims have recovered and are back on duty.

Shriver is facing charges in Madison County too but has not yet been indicted.

He will be in a Lincoln County courtroom on June 18.
