Police: Man fired shots into home with children inside

Authorities have arrested an Atlanta man who had been on the run since 2016 after he allegedly fired a gun into a home where children were present.

Jacques Demond Murray, 30, was booked into the Fulton County jail Friday on two counts of aggravated assault, one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and seven counts of third-degree cruelty to children.

Police had been searching for Murray since August 2016, when he allegedly fired into an apartment complex on the 300 block of Skipper Place in Atlanta.

The shots injured one man, Xavius Miller, who was inside with several other people, including children.
