COLUMBIA - Police announced Friday that 16-year old James T. Miller has been certified as an adult and charged with assault in the first degree, armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon for the shots fired incident at the Chuck E. Cheese's restaurant on West Worley Street on February 19.

Columbia Police responded to reports of shots fired 7 p.m. that night. Upon arrival, police found 6 to 8 casings and three bullet holes outside of Chuck E. Cheese's. Columbia police said the shooters probably spotted their target outside of the building and opened fire.

Police believed the incident was related to several shootings at that time, including the one outside Boone Tavern more than a week earlier. There is no word yet whether Miller faces charges for any other incident.

In a written statement after the incident, Chuck E. Cheese's management said, "Chuck E. Cheese's top priority is the safety of our guests. This is an unforeseen incident that happened outside our store and we are thankful no one was seriously injured. We are cooperating with local police in regards to the situation."

The day after the incident, it was business as usual at Chuck. E Cheese. Parent Amy Stegemen said, "It's not the location, it could have happened anywhere."
