Suspect facing attempted murder charge following shooting in Baker
BAKER - An 18-year-old man is facing multiple charges following a Monday shooting.
The incident was reported in the 2100 block of West Azalea Ave. A Baker Police Department unit was in the area, when the officers heard a single gunshot. When they went to investigate, the officers saw a woman running out of a house screaming "he shot him, he shot him."
Soon after Chadrick Jarrell walked out of the home holding a gun.
At that point, the officers told Jarrell to drop the weapon. Instead of listening, Jarrell ran back into the home then out a back door into the woods.
During the investigation, authorities learned that Jarrell had shot a man following a physical altercation in the home. The victim was transported to an area hospital for treatment.
Jarrell was charged with attempted second-degree murder, illegal discharge of a firearm, and simple battery.
