A Gwinnett County man charged with shooting four people after a fight outside a Roswell hookah bar pleaded not guilty Wednesday, according to Channel 2 Action News.
Jacob Weaver, 39, of Peachtree Corners, got in a fight at the Moon Hookah Lounge on Atlanta Street early in the morning on March 6, Roswell police spokeswoman Officer Lisa Holland previously told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Tenisha Harris told Channel 2 Weaver got upset with her when her friend rejected his advances.
“She looked uncomfortable,” Harris said.
Management reportedly asked Weaver to leave, but he waited in the parking lot and gave chase when the seven victims left in their minivan, Holland said.
When the minivan pulled into a parking lot near the intersection of Atlanta and King streets — not far from historic Barrington Hall — Weaver approached and began firing, Holland said. Four of the passengers, two men and two women, were wounded.
One woman was shot in the finger and another was shot through the leg.
They were taken to North Fulton Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
On Wednesday, three victims showed up in court, but Weaver had waived his appearance when he pleaded not guilty.
Harris told Channel 2 she forgives Weaver. “Only God can judge him,” she said.
