HOME INVASION GONE BAD
(FOR THE BAD GUY)
Chatanooga, Tenn. police arrested 22-year-old Calvin Carter III Monday, charging him with first-degree attempted murder, especially aggravated burglary, reckless endangerment, and three counts of aggravated assault.
According to the police report, Carter knocked on an apartment door in Mansion Circle, demanding to be let in. One victim told police he heard a metallic sound, what he thought was the receiver on a weapon being racked back and forth.
That’s when the victim jumped out of the apartment’s back window, only to be discovered by Carter. The report said Carter then led the one victim back to the apartment at gunpoint to make his way inside.
Carter then demanded the victim’s cellphone. During the exchange, his two victims jumped him, disarming him and holding him down until police arrived.
Carter shot 19-year-old Shane Feeney in the leg during the struggle. Feeney was taken to the hospital for examination and treatment.
Feeney said he had not met the man accused of shooting him and he wonders why the apartment he was in was targeted.
“Screaming and like tussling going on in the apartment,” Feeney remembered. “It felt like hours.”
What felt like hours, lasted only about 30 minutes.
Feeney recalled the scuffle with a man he said he had never met until Sunday night.
“I hope whatever happens to him is equal to what he did to us,” Feeney said.
Monday, neighbors said the people who were living in the apartment where the shooting took place were served with an eviction notice.
It’s not clear if that eviction is a result of the home invasion, or if anyone in the apartment knew the man arrested.
Carter’s bond was set for $245,000.
