Kennesaw police: Road rage suspects follow driver home, shoot up house

Police are investigating a road-rage incident that ended in gunfire Thursday in a Kennesaw subdivision, according to Channel 2 Action News.

A man driving home on March 15 was stopped at a light behind a Honda Civic. When the light turned green and the car didn’t go, he honked.

The driver did not take kindly to that and followed the man, who asked not to be identified, to his quiet subdivision in Kennesaw, Officer Scott Luther told Channel 2.

The driver, later identified as Marlo Pinnock, of Stone Mountain, parked a few driveways down and one of the occupants fired a warning shot, Luther said.

“We’re not sure if it was at the house, in the air or where,” Luther said. “They sped off.”

Police were unable to find the car that night, but two nights later, the Honda returned at about 9:15 p.m.

“The suspects came back to the house and fired several rounds into the home,” Luther said.

He estimated about nine shots hit the house.

A neighbor happened to be on his driveway, saw the gunfire and called 911 with a description of the car and a partial tag number.

“If it wasn’t for the neighbors getting involved and getting a good description of the vehicle, the drivers and calling us, we would not be able to catch them,” Luther told Channel 2.

Police found the car minutes later a few miles from the subdivision, when Pinnock and Richard Perry drove right toward Kennesaw police on Main Street and were pulled over.

“We just don’t understand the mindset they were in to actually come back and do what they did,” Luther told Channel 2. “It’s very rare. Very unusual.”

Both Pinnock and Perry were in custody at Cobb County jail on Tuesday, being held without bond.
