CLEVELAND — A Cleveland man has pleaded guilty to shooting a Cleveland police officer and another man in 2018.

Jonathan Chambers and the 37-year-old man got into an argument on Nov. 3, 2018 in a driveway near East 121st Street and Cromwell Avenue, according to court documents.

Chambers shot the man in the neck.

When officers arrived, Chambers opened fire on their cruiser with a machine gun, striking one of the officers twice in both legs, police said. Chambers then fled the scene.

He pleaded guilty to one count of attempted murder with a seven-year firearm specification and two counts of attempted murder with a three-year firearm specification.

Chambers will be sentenced on April 8. He faces between 13 to 46 years in prison.
