Eric Shields
A28879600

After a report of a man sitting in a car with a gun was received, Police Officers Joyce Neville and Emmett Gladden approached Eric Shields.  When he was asked to exit the car, Officer Gladden saw that Shield’s right hand was covered by newspaper.  Correctly fearing that Shields had a gun, he quickly grabbed Shields.  Shields began firing.  He fired at least five shots at the officers, hitting Officer Neville in the hand and Officer Gladden in the shoulder (body armor protected Officer Gladden).  When Shields was apprehended a short time later, he was found with the 9mm gun, a cloth holster, a magazine containing more live rounds, and a box of 9mm cartridges. 

Shields attempted to murder two police officers.  He presents a substantial risk to society and should not be granted any type of early release.
