(BROWNSTOWN) - 19-year-old Isiah Tyler Roger of Brownstown entered a guilty plea on Friday in Jackson Circuit Court to a charge of attempted murder in the shooting of county Officer Rick Meyer, who was hit once in each shoulder.

The incident occurred May 8, 2014.

Roger also pleaded guilty to a kidnapping charge from a separate incident that occurred three months after he went to jail for the shooting.

Roger was shot that night in return fire by Meyer.

Officer Meyer was investigating a report of suspicious juvenile walking along the highway with a trash bag and a gasoline can on State Road 39 just south of Tampico when Roger allegedly came out from under the bridge and opened fire.

Rogers was on parole after serving less than one year in prison on a sexual assault conviction and was barred from possessing a firearm. He had been out of prison less than three months when the incident occurred.

A second man involved in the incident, 21-year-old Alexandrew L. Mullikin of Vernon was wanted on a Jennings Circuit Court warrant on charges of auto theft and false informing, according to the Jennings County Prosecutor's Office. He was arrested on that warrant.
