A Rome man is wanted after allegedly shooting another man twice in the stomach when he tried to break up a domestic incident Wednesday.
Quincy Jamar Fluker, 32, has aggravated assault warrants out for his arrest, Rome police said in a news release.
Just after 11 a.m., officers responded to the 200 block of South Broad Street to find 29-year-old Darrius Martin with two gunshot wounds, the release said. Fluker is accused of shooting Martin after he tried to intervene in a “physical domestic altercation” between Fluker and his ex-wife.
Martin told police he saw Fluker assaulting the woman before he tried to stop it, the release said. Fluker had left the scene before officers arrived. Martin was taken to a hospital and is undergoing surgery for his wounds.
In addition to the aggravated assault charges, other charges are pending, police said.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call police at 706-238-5111 or 706-238-5126.
