Chief Magistrate Frank Cox supported the charges against James Phillips, 36, at a probable cause hearing.
According to the warrant, on the early morning of Feb. 4, a Cobb police officer pulled over a blue Volvo on Powers Ferry Road in east Cobb that was driven by Phillips.
The shooting occurred at 2:32 a.m. after officers targeted a “suspicious vehicle,” according to Sgt. Dana Pierce of Cobb Police.
“As the officer exited his car, he was shot and that vehicle then fled south-bound on Powers Ferry,” Pierce said.
Cobb Police officer C.A. Vill under-went surgery at Kenne-stone Hospital after being shot at least twice. The recovering office has not yet returned to work.
Cobb Police found the abandoned Volvo a short distance away at the Chattahoochee Apartments complex off Akers Mill Road.
After an eight-hour manhunt, Cobb Police found Phillips holed up in a house off Akers Mill Road in east Cobb, according to Pierce.
Phillips is being held in the county jail without bond.
District Attorney Vic Reynolds and Chief ADA Don Geary represented the state. Phillips is represented by defense attorney Ashleigh Merchant of the Marietta-based Merchant Law Firm.
