Man forces his way into home, shoots estranged wife, cops say

An estranged couple are in the hospital after a shooting early Monday in Cherokee County.

A 53-year-old Canton man, identified as Ronald Goss, allegedly forced his way into the home and shot Tina Goss, 48, according to Cherokee sheriff's office spokeswoman Marianne Kelley.

As a deputy was responding to a residential alarm, a 911 call was received about someone being shot at the residence. When deputies arrived at the home, they found Ronald Goss outside with an injury to his face.

They later found Tina Goss shot inside the home.

Ronald Goss will be charged with criminal attempt to commit murder, aggravated battery, aggravated assault and home invasion.

Ball Ground police Chief Bryon Reeves told Channel 2 Action News there was no history of calls to the house where the shooting happened.
