Ms. McMillion has been placed on administrative leave as per HCSO policy pending the conclusion of both an internal investigation (HCSO) and criminal investigation.

 

The event is currently under investigation by the Chattanooga Police Department.

 

At approximately 3:40 p.m., Chattanooga Police responded to a person shot call. Upon arrival, police located an adult female with a gunshot wound inside the apartment building and an adult male, who was said to have shot her, outside the building. 

 

 The female was taken to a hospital by Hamilton County EMS with non-life threatening injuries.

 

The man who was believed to be the person who shot the female was detained along with two other adult males. He was not charged.

 

However, another individual at the scene, Stanley Asegbola, was also charged with aggravated assault and kidnapping

 

 Investigators with the Violent Crimes Unit responded to conduct an investigation. During the course of the investigation, it was learned the male accused of the shooting did commit the act. It was also learned that the female accused that man of theft and she along with one of the other detained parties physically assaulted the man while both brandishing weapons.

 

It was learned that, during the assault, the court officer unholstered her loaded firearm and had it in her hand when the man who said he was in fear for his life disarmed then shot her with the weapon.  

 

Asegbola was taken to Silverdale Detention Center. Warrants were obtained on the court officer.
