Third suspect sought in Gwinnett home invasion

A third suspect is being sought in connection with a Gwinnett County home invasion in September.

Vidal Mendoza-Garcia, 34, of Norcross, is wanted on home invasion charges for an incident that took place Sept. 20. As police arrived in response to the home invasion, a suspect shot at them.

Gwinnett police say Mendoza-Garcia may be driving a white pickup truck and should be considered armed and dangerous.

The two suspects charged are Javier Gonzalez, 26, of Alpharetta, and Lamar Marcel Bowman, 30, of Norcross. Gonzalez, who was charged with one count of home invasion, is in the Gwinnett County jail. Bowman was charged with one count of home invasion and one count of aggravated assault. Police believe Bowman is the suspect who shot at officers as they arrived at the house.

Residents are asked to call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477 with information.
