According to Paul Holmes with JPD, the officers who fired at suspect Brandon Johnson in that incident are Roy Coleman, Rick Guimond, and Mike Brumfield with Jonesboro Police, and Charles Garr with the Craighead County Sheriff's Office.

Johnson was shot around 4 p.m. on Friday while officers with the 2nd Judicial Drug Task Force were trying to serve a warrant.

Police say the suspect pulled into the driveway and attempted to hit officers with the vehicle. That's when he was shot.

He was taken to St. Bernards Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Police are now searching for Johnson after he walked out of the hospital Monday morning.

The charges filed against Johnson will include aggravated assault and various drug charges, but not escape because he was not in police custody while at the hospital.
