In the first incident, officers were dispatched to the intersection of Lane Street and North Avenue at 5:27 p.m. in response to a shots fired call. According to the police report, two suspects - Jamail Riggins, 27, and Terry White, 26, - sped from the scene in a 1993 Dodge Dynasty. A minor child was also in the vehicle. A chase ensued and ended at Fairmont Homes, where Riggins reportedly fled on foot before being apprehended by Griffin police officers Mike Greene and Matt Clanton.
Confiscated were 48.92 gross grams of marijuana broken up and bagged in small bags, $860 in cash, and a .380-caliber semi-automatic pistol. Charges included possession of marijuana; possession of marijuana with the intent to sell; possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime; carrying a pistol without a license; and cruelty toward a child.
In the second incident, officers responded at 6:05 p.m. to a shots fired call in the area of Eighth and Tinsley streets. A foot chase by officer Chip Johns led to the arrest of Thadeas Jamar McCrary, 19. Three other suspects were also arrested. They were Kiedrick Kiev Menton, 18, Dremarcus Deante Barkley, 17, and Keevon Dontrece Pope, 18.
According to witnesses, the four suspects went to 550 N. Eighth St. and asked for Lamar Carr. When they were told Carr was not at home, witnesses alleged the suspects made threats, fired shots, and continued to fire shots after leaving the house.
The suspects were charged with firing a weapon; obstruction of an officer; carrying a weapon; and making terroristic threats.
