MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - This past weekend was a sobering reminder that keeping our streets free from crime is a dangerous job.
Mobile police Officer Chad Wynne continues to recover in the hospital after he was shot in the chest in a Midtown shootout.
Jakieth Harrison, one of the suspects in the case, had a bond hearing Monday morning.
Harrison, 18, stood silently in his first court appearance on Monday in Government Plaza. The District Attorney's office said Harrison was denied bond for Friday's shooting.
District Attorney Ashley Rich said, "This was a very, very serious crime and we asked the judge for no bond."
Police said around 11 p.m. Friday, at least two suspects tried to rob a grocery store on Government Street.
Mobile Police Chief Micheal T. Williams said, "The suspects apparently entered the business, as I understand it, through the front door, held some of the employees hostage."
A flurry of law enforcement arrived on the scene in response to a 911 call from the store. Officer Wynne was off-duty and responded to help.
When the officers made their way inside the building, a gun battle ensued, and Wynne was hit.
Police say one suspect was injured during the shootout as well and they were both taken to USA Medical Center.
Rich said, "We are very fortunate that we do not have more casualties as a result of the actions the defendants took at the Winn-Dixie that night."
Jakeith Harrison was arrested soon after, and the other suspect is still being treated at the hospital. Police will give out that suspect's name when he's released from the hospital.
Authorities say Officer Wynne's condition continues to improve at the hospital.
Meanwhile, Harrison continues to sit in jail awaiting his arraignment next week.
