A Chattanooga man charged with aggravated criminal trespassing was shot in the face during an altercation at College Hill Courts. According to police, 26-year-old Joshua Timmons instigated the shooting. The College Hill Courts site is property of the Chattanooga Housing Authority.

Police said Timmons had many prior trespassing charges and was on the criminal trespassing list of the CHA. In their report, they said the shooting would never have taken place had Timmons not trespassed.

Police also said Timmons was a member of the "Gangster Disciple" street gang, which they described as "very dangerous" and with "ties to numerous violent crimes and drug activity both nationally and locally."

They also mentioned that families with small children lived at College Hill Courts, saying the shooting caused the residents great fear.

Timmons was arrested on a prior criminal trespassing warrant, and bond was set at $15,000.
