Chattanooga police arrested a third suspect in connection with a break-in Tuesday that resulted in an officer shooting one of the suspects.

Jarvarres K. Williams, 22, is in custody, charged with two counts of criminal conspiracy, attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault and aggravated burglary, according to a Chattanooga police report.

Williams was found by police in a field across the street after they responded to a break-in at 4529 Hancock Road just after noon, the report said.

In interviews, 20-year-old Jeremichael Nicholson, another suspect, told police he went with 25-year-old Christopher Upshaw and Williams in order for them to burglarize the residence for money and crack cocaine.

When two officers arrived on scene, they found two suspects fleeing from the rear of the residence. Both men were armed with handguns. One of the suspects pointed a gun at officers. An officer returned fire hitting Upshaw in the neck or facial area.

Upshaw was treated at Erlanger hospital and listed in stable condition.

Upshaw and Nicholson also face charges of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault, two counts of criminal conspiracy and aggravated burglary.

Williams’ bond is set at $740,000. His next court date is set for Jan. 17 before General Sessions Court Judge Bob Moon.

Nicholson’s bond is set at $450,000. His next court date is set for Jan. 17 before General Sessions Court Judge Clarence Shattuck.
