BROOKLYN - The man facing attempted murder charges in the shooting of an NYPD detective in Bushwick was due back in court today.

The case against Luis Ortiz has now entered into the pre-trial stage. Prosecutors say Ortiz shot Kevin Brennan in the back of the skull at the Bushwick Houses more than a year ago.

Brennan, who was promoted to detective after the crime, has already faced his accused shooter in court and is expected to testify during the trial.
