Tim Scroggins, 32, was recently sworn in and said he's "loving it." He spent five years as a police officer in Woodville working narcotics and also spent a year as a Tyler County Deputy Sheriff.

Scroggins replaces Officer Jeremiah Gunter, who went to work for the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

Scroggins said he came to the Silsbee Police Department for more opportunities.

"It's a little bit bigger town and I always liked this area,"he said.

Since Scroggins worked narcotics in Tyler County, he'll continue doing so here. He said he has always wanted to work in law enforcement. He tried other jobs, but found that police work was the best for him.

He and his wife, Kelli, have an 8-year-old daughter named Peyton.

Police Chief Tommy Bartosh said that Scroggin's law enforcement background and the fact that he's a seasoned police officer made him stand out from the pool of other applicants.

"He has a good track record and he was recommended by several in the criminal justice field," Bartosh said. SPD supervisors also judged applicants on their personality, appearance and knowledge.

"I always supported an aggressive department in drug enforcement to keep our streets clean from illegal drugs. I think he will be an asset in that,"Bartosh said.

The Baltimore school board has named J. Keith Scroggins to the permanent position of chief operating officer.

Scroggins, who previously headed the Bureau of General Services at the city Department of Public Works, has held the job on an interim basis since June. He replaced Eric Letsinger, who was fired after taking 10 school system and city employees on a fishing trip. Letsinger paid for the trip himself, but there were questions about whether he intended to use public funds before details were made public.

The chief operating officer oversees more than 1,000 employees in departments, including transportation, food services, school police and facilities.

In other action, the school board appointed Barbara Wheeler, an associate superintendent in Cecil County, to the newly created position of deputy officer for academic achievement.

Wheeler's position replaces the job of deputy chief academic officer that was held by Frank DeStefano, who resigned this month. But while DeStefano oversaw only middle and high schools, Wheeler will oversee instruction from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, said school system spokeswoman Edie House.

System officials did not release the salaries for Scroggins or Wheeler.

ABC12.com: Police may know who shot 10-year-old

Shooting victim, 10, in critical

Police say they may know the identity of the shooter

WJRT Dawn Jones

- (09/22/06)-- Police say they think they know fired the shot that hit a 10-year-old fourth grader at Dort Elementary School, in Flint. As of right now, however, they say no one is in custody, and there are no warrants for any arrests in the case.

Nearly 24 hours after the shooting, investigators say they still have very little information about what happened.

A neighbor said that she saw the boy, who has been identified James "Coby" Scroggins, playing in his front yard at around 6:30 p.m. She smiled at him and he smiled back, but as she looked down at a book, she heard a gunshot.

"I heard something that sounded like fireworks and then Coby grabbed at his stomach and started staggering toward the car. That's when his brother came running out of the house and told me to call 911," said Alice Bates.

Police confirm the boy was shot one time. It's unknown where the shot came from and where on his body the boy was hit.

Police did say that only one shot was fired.

Jamie Turner says she knows the boy. "Someone called me and told me Coby had been shot. He's such a sweet young boy. Why would someone do something like that?"

The boy was taken to Hurley Medical Center, where he is listed in critical condition.

Coby is Flint's third young shooting victim in as many months.

Back in July, five-year-old NiYauna Jones was killed in a drive by shooting while she was riding in the back seat of a car

Then in August, nine-year-old Victoria Taylor was accidentally shot and killed by her brother's ten-year-old Friend. Taylor, her brother, and the friend were home alone when the Friend got his hands on a loaded shotgun in the house.
