43-year-old Michael Angers was charged with aggravated assault, possession of a firearm in the commission of a dangerous felony, and criminal attempted murder 2nd degree after shooting at a vehicle he says was driving recklessly.
On February 24th, Deputy Williams responded to an aggravated assault call at the Circle K gas station on Winchester Road. The victim, Lydell Holland, advised officers that he was driving on Hacks Cross Road near the intersection of Shelby Drive. Another vehicle drove past him and fired a single shot into his passenger side door. Lydell said he followed the vehicle to get the tag number, but was unable to get a description of the driver. He then pulled into the Circle K parking lot.
Lydell also told officers the bullet hit his leg and felt a burning sensation. He requested medical attention to ensure everything was okay. Memphis Fire arrived on scene and discovered some metal fragments in his leg and made the recommendation that Lydell follow up at the hospital.
The next morning, Detectives Black and Hampton went on a follow-up visit on Notting Hill Road. They met with Michael Angers, a resident at the home. A search warrant was obtained for the home and the vehicle parked in the garage. The detectives discovered a 9mm Keltic inside the car with 10 rounds in the magazine and 1 in the chamber. Michael waived his Miranda rights and gave a statement on record. Michael admitted he rolled down his window on Hack Cross Road and fired a single round at a vehicle that he said was driving recklessly. He went further to say he wasn’t sure if anyone had been shot, so he just continued driving.
Michael Anger was arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault, Possession of a Firearm in the commission of a Dangerous Felony, and Criminal Attempted 2nd Degree Murder. His bond was set at $50,000.
