Suspect named in Chattanooga double shooting

Chattanooga police are looking for 24-year-old man as a suspect in the shooting Wednesday that killed a man and left his girlfriend in the hospital with two gunshot wounds.

Jerrico Lamont Hawthorne is wanted on several warrants in connection with the incident, including felony murder, attempted first-degree murder and especially aggravated robbery, said police spokeswoman Sgt. Jerri Weary.

In a home robbery at 2305 E. 17th St., James Williams Jr., 23, was killed and his girlfriend, 38-year-old Yetta Harris was wounded.

Early Wednesday morning, Harris’ 18-year-old son was approached by two males who demanded money from him, police said, then forced . Harris and Williams arrived at the home shortly after and the suspects demanded money from them, Weary said. One of the suspects shot Williams multiple times in the chest and Harris at least twice.

After the shooting, the suspects fled the home in an unknown direction, taking an undisclosed amount of money, Weary said.

Hawthorne was arrested July 15 on charges of driving on revoked, suspended or cancelled license, evading arrest, possession of a firearm during commission of a crime, theft of property and reckless endangerment, records show.

Anyone with information on Hawthorne is asked to contact the Chattanooga Police. He is considered armed and dangerous. Police are still working on the identity of the second suspect.

Another example... If they would hand down stricter punishments and actually made these criminals serve time he would have still been in prison and this would not have happened.

What? No room in the jail for Jerico? What was his bond on all the July 15th charges or was he R.O.R.? Get popped with a sack of weed and you will rot in jail. Terrorize your hood and you get a pass. Amazing!
