The DeKalb man accused of shooting and injuring an Atlanta police officer from the roof of a Moreland Avenue restaurant in 2012 pleaded guilty to multiple charges on Wednesday.

According to prosecutors, Cameron Christian Maddox, 21, will serve 30 years of a 50-year prison sentence for one count of attempted murder and four counts of aggravated assault for shooting APD Officer Dexter Toomer in the leg.

As East Atlanta Patch reported at the time, Maddox, who was on the roof of the Brewhouse Café in Little Five Points, shot Toomer as he exited the Zesto restaurant across the street. Maddux was arrested the following day.

Toomer recovered and returned to work not long after the shooting.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported last year that Maddox had been ruled incompetent to stand trial after a review of his mental evaluation by a DeKalb County Superior Court judge.
