CLEVELAND (AP) — A man accused of shooting and injuring a Cleveland police officer with an assault-type rifle while the officer was responding to a call about a shooting has been charged with attempted murder.
A $1 million bond was set Monday in Cleveland Municipal Court for Jonathan Chambers. The judge also ordered a psychiatric evaluation for the 30-year-old Cleveland man.
Court records don’t show whether Chambers has an attorney yet.
Authorities say Chambers shot a man in the neck while the man was sitting in a car Saturday and then shot 28-year-old police officer Shane McNea in both legs when McNea and another officer arrived to investigate.
McNea was in stable condition. The other officer wasn’t injured.
Police say the man shot in the neck remained hospitalized for treatment of his wound.
