Men fired shots in N. Fulton road rage incident, police say

Two men were arrested by Johns Creek police last month after a road rage incident in which the men fired shots toward another car, police said.

Curtis L. Harris and Shawn N. Harris were arrested just north of the Forsyth and Fulton County line and charged with reckless conduct and possession of marijuana. Police said they recovered drugs and guns from the car.

Channel 2 Action News acquired dash cam footage of the incident and spoke with Johns Creek Police Captain Chris Byers about it. Police said no one was hurt in the incident.

“From what we understand, it was a road rage incident,” Byers told Channel 2. “They were frustrated with another driver and began shooting the weapon towards that car.”

Byers said police received reports that men in a white pickup truck fired shots toward a white van at the intersection of Medlock Bridge and Abbotts Bridge roads. Byers said that Johns Creek Police Chief Ed Densmore spotted the truck matching the description, followed it up Ga. 141 and called for backup.

The truck was pulling a trailer and eventually pulled over. With their guns drawn, officers ordered the suspects out of the truck and they were arrested without incident.

“Those are the type of situations where you need to back off,” Byers said of road rage. “It’s just not worth it.”
