SALEM -- A man wounded by a Marion County sheriff's deputy appeared in a court Monday by jail video to hear he's facing charges that include being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The 48-year-old man, Michael Kent Wylie, also is suspected of a home invasion robbery last week in Edmonds, Wash., another crime in Tigard and a parole violation in Salt Lake City.

The Statesman Journal reports he's jailed pending his next court appearance on May 8.

Wylie was shot in the leg Friday by a deputy who found him apparently passed out in a stolen car near Turner. The deputy fired when Wylie woke up and brandished a gun.
