Man accused of shooting 2 officers will stay behind bars

CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — A man charged with shooting two College Park police officers will stay behind bars.

Kendarrious Chester will be held without bail and stay locked up on three counts of aggravated assault on a police officer.

Chester is accused of shooting two College Park officers during a shootout at a south Fulton County restaurant.

Channel 2 Action News was the only news outlet there as he was walked into the jail this week following his capture.


A U.S. Marshals Service fugitive squad found him early Thursday sleeping in a truck, parked behind a house on Metropolitan Parkway. A gun was also found within his reach, but police say he never had time to grab for it because they took him by surprise.

Chester was arrested without incident after 12 days of searching.

Police say he's refused to cooperate in the investigation or answer their questions.

Chester was scheduled to make his first appearance in front of a judge inside the jail at 11 a.m. Saturday morning, but waived that right and will be held without bail.
