One of the young men charged in a gang shooting on Holiday Hills Circle on Tuesday night was on bond on attempted murder and aggravated robbery charges.
Joshua Jamorris Daniels, 20, was once under a $300,000 bond after being charged with attempted first-degree murder and aggravated assault. That bond was set in General Sessions Court Judge Clarence Shattuck after a hearing.
His attorney, David Barrows, said prosecutors later agreed to lower the bond for Daniels to $15,000 because the state could not get its witnesses to appear in court.
Attorney Barrow later asked Criminal Court Judge Rebecca Stern to lower the bond to $1,000 for Daniels and he was released.
Daniels is also facing an aggravated robbery charge. Attorney Barrow said there are also witness problems in that case.
In the attempted murder, Daniels was one of two men arrested in connection with a shooting that left a teen in critical condition.
In January, 2008, Chattanooga Police responded to the 800 block of Woodmore Lane on a shots fired call. When police arrived on the scene, the victim had left the area by private vehicle to go to East Ridge Hospital.
Alex Johnson, 19, had been shot once in the abdomen and was transferred to Erlanger Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition.
After interviews with several witnesses, Chattanooga Police homicide detectives arrested Daniels, who was then 18.
Police also arrested Kelvin Daniels, 38, and charged him with accessory after the fact. Kelvin Daniels is the uncle of Joshua Daniels.
The motive for the shooting was unknown with the investigation continuing by the Chattanooga Police Homicide Unit, police said at the time.
