Police obtain warrants, identify suspects in Milton shooting

Police in Milton have obtained arrest warrants for two men they believe were involved in a June shooting.

Oronde Sinkfield, 39, of Atlanta, and Adonte Isaac, 32, of Lithonia, are wanted by Milton police and face charges of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by convicted felon, possession of a firearm and discharging a firearm on a city street.

The shooting police believe the two suspects are connected to happened around 1 a.m. on June 30 near Hopewell Road. A family was in their vehicle, driving south on the road when someone shot their car multiple times. A child was in the vehicle at the time, but no one was seriously injured, police said.

Police said a light-colored SUV was seen quickly leaving the scene of the shooting. Shortly after the shooting, Milton police issued a BOLO for the vehicle. An Alpharetta police officer saw it speeding on Ga. 400 and stopped it. The two suspects were briefly detained, but police said they had an “insufficient” amount of evidence to make an arrest.

As Alpharetta police were conducting this traffic stop, Milton police responded to a burglar alarm on Bailey Forest Drive. Police found a back door forced open. The residence was unoccupied, but police found evidence that a gun had been discharged several times inside the home.

After an investigation that included interviews, video evidence and physical evidence, police determined that the suspects, Sinkfield and Isaac, left the Bailey Forest Drive residence prior to the Hopewell Road shooting. Police said they determined that the same firearm was used in both incidents.

The owner of the residence at Bailey Forest Drive said that Sinkfield and Isaac had permission to be in the home. Detectives are still investigating why shots were fired in the home.

Police ask that anyone with information about the two suspects call 911.
