JEFFERSONVILLE, IN (WAVE) - The trial for the man charged with shooting and attempting to kill an Indiana State Trooper has been delayed.

Police reports showed Oscar Kays was pulled over by Trooper Morgenn Evans in December for a traffic stop when he fired at Evans. Evans was shot in the head but was able to return fire and request the backup that later led to Kays' arrest.

An April 3 trial date was originally scheduled for Kays. Clark County Prosecutor Jeremy Mull said that will be delayed because the mental competency evaluation ordered for Kays has not yet been completed.

The trial was reset for August 21.
