Family ‘can breathe’ after suspect arrested in shooting of Kennesaw home

A man has been arrested in connection with the shooting of a Kennesaw home last month. 

Anthony Jordan Brown, 19, of Marietta, was arrested Friday and accused of the Sept. 22 shooting at the home on North Main Street, Cobb County sheriff’s spokesman Glenn Daniel said. 

The home was shot at about 20 times, Daniel said. The family believes it could have been more than 100 shots, previously reported.

Eight people were at the home at the time of the shooting, Daniel said. No one was injured, but the house and the homeowner’s car sustained damage.  

The homeowner, who asked not to use her last name, believes there are more suspects involved. She described the time between the shooting and the arrest of Brown as “19 days of just fear.”

For now, Amanda said her family “can breathe” but that they will feel better when more arrests are made. 

Amanda said she believes the case revolves around a girl her 17-year-old son has recently been seeing. She said the girl’s ex-boyfriend is Brown. 

The girl was at the Kennesaw home the night of the shooting, she said.

“It’s terrifying,” Amanda said. “This is not the type of thing anyone could ever imagine.”

Brown is charged with eight counts of aggravated assault with the intent to murder, one count of possession of a firearm during a crime, and one count of second-degree criminal damage, according to Daniel. He is being held at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center without bond.
