Jesse A. Loving, 19 has been indicted on charges of criminal attempted murder. The charges, along with two others, stem from an incident on April 8 in which Loving allegedly fired several shots at a deputy sheriff who was trying to serve him with a warrant.   The deputy, Brian Miller, was not injured.

According to the indictment, Loving "intentionally or under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to human life, wantonly attempted to cause the death of Deputy Brian Miller."

The shooting happened at home of Loving's father on Hempridge Road, just off U.S. 60.

After Loving shot at the deputy, he fled on foot, and a manhunt involving several police agencies ensued.

He turned himself in the next morning.

In addition to the charge of attempted murder, he is also being charged with fleeing and evading police in connection with the manhunt.

The warrant the deputy was trying to serve on Loving was for fourth-degree domestic assault, violating an emergency protective order, criminal mischief and terroristic threatening in connection with an incident on March 24 involving his live-in girlfriend.

Loving had been arrested before, on March 9, for the same offense against his girlfriend, who had sustained various minor injuries in the altercation, Shelby County Sheriff Mike Armstrong said.

Loving has been in custody at the Shelby County Detention Center since his arrest.

Natalie Wilson of pre-trial services said Loving's bond is $25,000 cash, and he is scheduled to appear in Shelby Circuit Court on July 6 for a pre-trial conference.
