A Cherokee County man is in jail nearly a month after police say he forced his way into his estranged wife’s home and shot her.

Ronald Goss had been hospitalized along with Tina Goss after the Feb. 12 incident in Ball Ground, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported.

As a deputy was responding to a residential alarm about 5 a.m. that day, a 911 call was received about someone being shot at the residence, Cherokee County sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Marianne Kelley said. When deputies arrived, they found the 53-year-old man outside with an injury to his face.

Deputies did not confirm whether Tina Goss inflicted those injuries. The 48-year-old woman remains in medical care.

Ronald Goss was booked Thursday into the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center. He faces charges of criminal attempt to commit murder, aggravated battery of a family member, aggravated assault and home invasion, Kelley said.

He is being held without bond.
