Jonathan Chambers Pleads Guilty to Attempted Murder

Cleveland - Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley announced that Jonathan Chambers, 31, pled guilty to shooting two Cleveland Police officers and a 37-year-old man in Cleveland on November 3rd, 2018.

“By the grace of God, nobody was killed by this senseless act of violence” said Prosecutor O’Malley. “Through the due diligence of Cleveland Police’s Homicide Unit and Gang Impact Unit, this individual was brought to justice.”

On November 3rd, Chambers and the 37-year-old victim argued in a driveway near East 121st Street and Cromwell Avenue, and Chambers shot him in the neck. 

When Cleveland Police responded to the scene, Chambers opened fire on their cruiser with a machine gun, striking one of the officers twice in both of his legs, and fled the scene. 

Both the 37-year-old man and police officer were transported to the hospital for treatment. Chambers was arrested later that evening.

Chambers pled guilty to the following charges:

  • 1 count of Attempted Murder (with a 7-year Firearm specification)
  • 2 counts of Attempted Murder (with 3-year Firearm specifications)

Chambers will be sentenced on April 8, 2020 at 1:30pm. He faces a range of 13 to 46 years in prison.
