Two 19-year-olds are facing several charges after authorities said they were involved in a hit-and-run wreck in which someone shot at the driver.
Villa Rica police arrested Isiah Anderson of Lithonia and Caprecia Kenney of Villa Rica in connection with the June 5 shooting, department spokesman Capt. Keith Shaddix confirmed to AJC.com.
The victim told police he was driving onto the I-20 entrance ramp from Ga. 61 when his car crashed into another vehicle, Shaddix confirmed. The driver of the other vehicle did not pull over, he said.
When the victim tried to catch up with the other car to get its tag information, the driver pulled out a gun and fired, according to Shaddix. The other driver did not stop after the shooting, he said.
An anonymous tip helped police identify Kenney and Anderson as the suspects, Shaddix said. Anderson was taken to the Carroll County Jail on June 22, and Kenney was booked into the facility the following day.
Kenney was released Saturday on a $10,000 bond, and Anderson was released on a $15,000 bond Tuesday, jail records show.
They are each charged with aggravated assault, first-degree criminal damage to property, failure to report an accident with injury or damage, and reckless conduct.
