Cleveland shooting suspect arrested in Chattanooga standoff

A man, wanted in connection to a Cleveland shooting, is in custody following a police stand off.

Cadarius Cochran was arrested Friday afternoon off 6th Avenue, inside East Lake Courts.

Cochran was wanted on 10 counts of felony reckless endangerment and two counts of aggravated assault.

Cleveland authorities say he was the trigger man in a shooting outside Luv 2 Dance Studio over the weekend.

On Friday police learned Cochran was staying in Chattanooga.

The SWAT team swarmed the housing complex where he was located.

Police say Cochran refused to cooperate, but then gave up peacefully.

"They found out that he was here," explained Officer Tim McFarland, "at first he refused to come out, but then quickly gave up."

Cochran is being booked at the Hamilton County Jail and will be sent back to Bradley County to answer to charges.

It is unclear if he will face charges in Chattanooga.
