A 20-year-old man was arrested today in connection with a January shooting at Terry's Lounge in Chattanooga
Cordirrus Birt — who also goes by Cordirrus Jones — was arrested at 3212 Fourth Ave., said police spokeswoman Officer Rebecca Royval. He tried to run, she said, but was caught after a brief pursuit.
He was carrying a loaded 9 mm handgun when taken into custody, Royval said.
He is charged with attempted first-degree murder and aggravated assault in connection with the Jan. 21 shooting of 28-year-old Derrick Lewis. The shooting took place at Terry’s Lounge, located at 4010 Rossville Blvd.
Lewis' injuries were not life-threatening.
Birt was taken to the Hamilton County Jail, where he was charged with the two outstanding warrants and additional charges of unlawful carry or possessing a weapon, evading arrest and resisting a stop, frisk halt or arrest, Royval said.
