The shooter was long gone. Authorities said surveillance video helped them to identify Griffin, and they went looking for him at his home.
His wife answered the door.
She told deputies “that he had left earlier that day and she had no idea where he could be,” the spokesman said.
Griffin was eventually tracked to an undisclosed location in Gwinnett County and he surrendered without incident early Friday morning, according to the sheriff’s office.
He is facing charges of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and battery, online court records show. He was expected to be booked into the Clayton County Jail.
