ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta police say the man accused of shooting an off-duty officer at an apartment complex has been arrested.

Police Sgt. Greg Lyon said Tuesday that 23-year-old Jemarcus Deshun Jordan has been charged in the Nov. 9 shooting of an officer who was wounded in his face and leg by a shotgun blast.

Lyon says the officer was working an approved side job at the time and details on the motive that may have led to the shooting are unclear.

Lyon says Jordan is being held in the DeKalb County jail and it's unclear if he has an attorney.
