A former Carrollton police officer is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday morning on charges related to a shooting in September.  According to the probable cause statement, Lynn Ward was attempting to apprehend a suspect involved in an earlier dispute when the individual ran from the scene.  Ward allegedly chased after the suspect, drew his weapon, and shot at the individual.  The 50-year-old Lexington resident was relieved of his duties at the Carrollton Police Department shortly after the incident.  Ward now faces a felony assault charge.  His bond has been set at $75,000.  He is due back in court at 9:00 a.m.
