Suspect in South Pittsburg shooting apprehended


Michael Godsby who has been alluding capture since being named a suspect in the October 3 shooting of Zachary Cantrell. Cantrell was treated at a Chattanooga hospital and released suffering two gun shots. Initially hesitant to point out the assailant, the victim reportedly would acknowledge Godsby as the shooter later.

Since being treated, the victim posted a vulgarity-enhanced post to social media three days after the shooting indicating that “Y’all done [messed] up cause I’m still breathing.”

Godsby was booked in the Marion County jail Thursday night on charges of Possession of a firearm while committing a felony, felon in possession of a firearm, felony reckless endangerment, criminal attempt to commit first degree murder, violation of probation (circuit court) and aggravated domestic assault.

No preliminary court date was assigned according to booking information at the time of this report. We will continue to follow the story.
