DONALDSONVILLE - A judge set bonds for three people accused in the shooting of Ascension Parish deputy at more than $1 million each.

The following bonds were set for the three, who were charged in connection with Wednesday afternoon's shooting:

* John McMullen- $1,445,589.00
* Chadwick Schwender- $1,695.589.00
* Jennifer McGhee- $1,195.589.00

Investigators said the three stole ammunition Wednesday from the Donaldsonville Walmart. Deputy James Atkins stopped their car a short time later, and Sheriff Jeff Wiley said Schwender got out of the car and started shooting at Atkins.

The deputy was hit in the hand and retreated to call for help. Deputies arrested McGhee and Schwender later and launched a manhunt for McMullen, who was found hiding in a shed.

All three were booked on attempted murder, theft, flight, and illegal firearms charges.
