Following a verbal altercation, the two became involved in a physical altercation, leading to the injuries sustained. As this is no longer being considered an Aggravated Battery stemming from a shooting, the Violent Crimes Unit has yielded this investigation back to the Patrol Division. This continues to be an active investigation being followed up by the responding officer,” said JSO.
