Kenneth Lebron Trammell surrendered Thursday afternoon to the Chattanooga Police fugitive unit on charges of being involved in a shooting near Howard High Schooi on Saturday where a 14-year-old bystander was hit.
Trammell,19, of 813 E. 49th St., has been charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, and unlawful possession of a firearm.
Police said Police Sgt. Todd Royval witnessed Trammell standing on the south side of W. 26th Street holding a silver revolver and shooting toward Carr Street.
Sgt. Royval exited a marked patrol vehicle from the passenger side and drew his weapon. Police said Trammell noticed the officer, lowered the handgun and ran south on Market Street.
As Sgt. Royval gave chase, he said he saw Trammell throw down his gun before running into a large crowd at Harris-Johnson Park. There were at least 1,000 people at the park for the annual Southside reunion, police said.
The victim of the shooting was later released from the hospital. Police said earlier they believe that two people were shooting at each other and the victim was caught in the crossfire when he was shot.
A juvenile who police say was involved in the shooting was arrested earlier.
