CPD's Gun Team charged Cordell Dewayne Young, 26, with five counts of aggravated assault, one count of reckless endangerment and one count of vandalism.

Additional investigation by the CPD Gun Team with assistance from multiple community members and CPD Neighborhood Policing Officers led to confirmation that Young is the individual responsible for the shots fired in the 2800 block of Dodson Avenue on Sept. 29, it was stated.
 
Young is currently in custody at the Hamilton County Jail.
