Clayton County’s ‘most wanted’ suspect turns himself in

A Jonesboro man who found himself at the top of the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office “most wanted” list after allegedly shooting an acquaintance inside an apartment last month is now behind bars, authorities said 

Travis Deandre McCannick, 19, turned himself into the Clayton County jail Thursday morning, records show. He is charged with one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Authorities said McCannick shot another man multiple times in the lower extremities April 12 following a dispute at a Jonesboro apartment.

The man survived the shooting and told investigators the alleged attack was unprovoked and the result of a verbal altercation, police said.

The sheriff’s office said McCannick was named No. 1 on the county’s most wanted list “because of the extreme and unnecessary level of violence” he displayed during the shooting.

McCannick is being held at the Clayton County Jail without bond, records show.
