Placeholder Image
Calvin Chipp is currently serving 20 years on the charge of voluntary manslaughter for the April 16, 2006, shooting of Roger Harrell outside the Skybox bar in Midway.
He is scheduled to serve 15 years and have five years of probation. He is also scheduled to serve an additional five years of probation for the charge of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, which will be served consecutively giving him a mandatory 25-year sentence.
Chipp shot Harrell with an AK-47 assault rifle after an altercation that began inside the club spilled out to the parking lot. By pleading to the lesser charges Chipp avoided a trial in front of a jury where if convicted, he faced a possible life sentence.
