Cleveland Police arrested one person during the weekend after he allegedly fired shots at a Green Drive residence. Another investigation is ongoing at an Adkisson Drive apartment, just a few doors from where the suspect in the Green Drive incident was taken into custody.

According to Detective Bill Parks, of the Cleveland Police Department Criminal Investigations Division, the incidents were not related.

Olaine L. Jones Jr., 29, of a Chattanooga address, was taken into custody Monday after reportedly discharging a weapon at a Green Drive residence.

He fled the scene and was later taken into custody.

Jones was charged with theft over $500, reckless endangerment, convicted felon in possession of a firearm and possession of a firearm during a dangerous felony.

According to Parks, details surrounding the incident were few, and the investigation is continuing.

Parks said the Adkisson Drive incident investigation is also continuing, and evidence of a shooting there has been recovered. One person was reported to have minor injuries.

According to a report filed by officer Brett Taylor, two male suspects kicked in a door to an apartment, then held the occupants at gunpoint.

Another person inside the apartment attempted to hold a bedroom door shut, but one of the suspects reportedly shoved it open, striking the victim and causing minor injury. According to the report, the suspect’s firearm discharged, then he ran from the room and both suspects then fled the scene.

After beginning their investigation, officials believed the break-in and assault might be drug-related, due to the fact they located evidence of drug-related activity inside the household, according to Taylor’s report.

A suspect has not been located in that case.

Additional information will be released as it becomes available.

- Cleveland Police were also in charge of investigating a multivehicle crash which occurred Tuesday evening at Westside Drive and 25th Street.

According to 911 reports, at first officials were advised that there were possible injuries but after arriving on the scene, police and emergency crews were able to determine no one had been seriously injured in the three cars involved.

Responding to the scene were CPD officers, Bradley County Emergency Medical Service paramedics and Cleveland Fire Department first responders.
