A passenger in a car stopped by East Ridge, Tenn., police
for erratic driving fled on foot toward an apartment complex with a
police officer in pursuit. The passenger, Derrick Middlebrooks,
kicked in the door of an apartment and ran in screaming, awakening
the tenant. "The homeowner inside was asleep and woke up. He told
Middlebrooks to leave and that he had a gun," said East Ridge Police
Officer John Sentell. "Middlebrooks, who was still screaming, ran
toward the bedroom where the homeowner was located. The homeowner
told [him] again to leave, then fired a .22-cal. pistol, hitting
Middlebrooks once in the left shoulder." According to police,
Middlebrooks had several outstanding warrants including domestic
assault and violating probation.
