Man charged with attempted murder in convenience store shooting

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)-- Chattanooga police have arrested a man they say is a suspect in a shooting at a convenience store last Friday night.

Police Sergeant Jerri Weary says 21-year-old Roland Rico Reynolds was allegedly involved in the incident at Sandy's Mini-Mart on Glass Street that sent 22-year-old Eric Bell to the hospital with a bullet in his shoulder.

Bell told police he and a friend were threatened by gang-members who recognized them. He says one of the men fired shots as the two tried driving away, hitting him in the arm.

Weary says Reynolds is accused of pulling the trigger.

Reynolds was booked into the Hamilton County Jail Thursday.

He is charged with two counts of aggravated assault, unlawful carrying or possessing weapon, attempted first degree murder, and driving on revoked, suspended or canceled license.
