Albany -- Dressed in a blue jump suit and shackled in hand cuffs, 18-year-old Johnny Elvonzo Hill made his first appearance in court Thursday morning.

Hill stood before State Court Magistrate Judge Robert Revell as he read through the charges which include aggravated assault on a police officer, obstruction of a police officer, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, and possession of marijuana, all felonies.

APD investigators named Hill as a suspect in the Tuesday morning shooting of Albany Police Officer Timothy Harvey. Harvey was shot in the abdomen after giving chase to a suspicious person near the corner of 8th Avenue and North Davis Street.

Wednesday night, law enforcement from a several agencies moved in on Hill who was hiding out at the SouthFork Apartments on McCarthur Street in Camilla. Dougherty County School Police had outstanding warrants against Hill for obstruction of an officer and giving a false name. The 18-year-old had recently been kicked out of Westover High School.

Judge Revell also informed Hill of the two misdemeanor charges he also faces in connection with the outstanding warrants.

If convicted, Hill could face up to 20 years in prison. We'll continue to update you on this story as more information becomes available.
