Yesterday Officer William McMillan of the CPD was responding to a theft call when he came upon a disorder. Someone involved in the fracas turned and fired on him. A large number of police officers converged on the scene.

Members of the SWAT Team were out in force as well as the K-9 unit combing nearby streets. A large area was blocked off with yellow crime scene tape.

Officer McMillan was transported to a local hospital for treatment of the non-life-threatening injury.

Now...Chattanooga Police this morning arrested Celvin Montez Houston for shooting Officer William McMillan, charging him with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault, and unlawful possession of a firearm ...

He had two additional warrants from a prior incident for attempted murder and aggravated robbery.

Houston has a lengthy criminal record, including a conviction last year in state court for being in possession of a handgun with felony convictions. He got a two-year suspended sentence.

He got another two-year suspended sentence in 2004 when he was charged with unlawfully possessing a weapon.

Sure hope the officer is ok.


What we need is some more gun laws, that would have stopped this.
Yeah, right.

Wish they'd killed him the first time he got caught for attempted murder. It wouldnt have hurt the LEO or his family and be putting them through grief right now.

Bond set at 1.25 million$. Doubt he'll be going home soon.
He will after he pleads guilty to a lesser charge and the DA accepts it. Maybe he will get 3 year suspended this time. UGH

Revolving door justice system... Lawyers plead down serious charges and judges give minimum sentences.
The citizens should demand those judges be held accountable IF there is a history of repeated light sentencing for serious crimes. Some judges actually believe thugs can be rehabilitated into productive members of society.
There are a lot of variables, but rehabilitation seldom works.

Now, IF we'd waste LITTLE time with Celvin and end him on court square on an announced date - the onlooking thugs would think twice before shooting at another LEO however, Liberal society that we've become, we'll waste a million we dont have trying this thug, send him to prison where he can overindulge in TV and weight-lifting while getting a law-degree, all on OUR nickel :mad:

Thank goodness the LEO was not hurt worse.

It happened about half mile from my church where I was doing security duty.There were about 50 police officers there in minutes.We have a shooting down there in the projects regularly.Things were pretty tight that night, but at least they got him.

My brother in law is a police officer and recently made SWAT in Howard County Maryland. He said it is amazing how it truly is the criminal's justice system. He tells me about how these felons know how to shop for the right judge that will be the most lenient and delay court date after court date until they get the judge they want. Equally amazing is how these judges aren't held accountable. A lot of the people he picks up are repeat offenders that he knows and they know him from previous arrests. My BIL says that their knowledge of how to play the justice system is incredible, they practically know down to the hour when they will be released and how long processing will take, what the D.A. will and won't fight, etc, etc, etc, the list goes on and on. It's pathetic.
