VANCOUVER -- New charges were filed Tuesday against the man accused of shooting Vancouver police officer Dustin Goudschaal seven times on June 30.
Police said suspect James Sapp tried to steal a woman's car as he fled the scene of the shooting, punching her in the face twice and attempting to pull her out of the window while she was driving, according to court documents.

He eventually gave up, but stole a man's car keys nearby and drove off in his truck, the documents show. He later crashed it.
Investigators said they found heroin and marijuana in a nylon bag hidden behind the Dumpster where Sapp was eventually arrested, and there was meth in his pockets.
Sapp now faces charges of assault, attempted robbery, and methamphetamine and heroin possession. He was previously charged with attempted murder, robbery and felon in possession of a firearm.
Meanwhile Sapp's arraignment has been postponed for a week for consideration of the new charges. The defense will ask for a reduction in his $10 million bail.

Prosecutors said they added the charges after further investigating the officer-involved shooting, which began with a traffic stop on Northeast 162nd Avenue and 34th Street.
