Jerry Ransom, 32, of Cartersville was shot in the neck just before 10 p.m. Monday after witnesses said he argued with a group of suspects, according to the report. Ransom was transported to Floyd Medical Center where he was listed in stable condition Tuesday morning. Authorities said he was expected to be released later Tuesday.
Witnesses said Ransom and the five men argued, with one neighbor saying she heard the suspects say “they were going to shoot him over owing money on a vehicle.”
The group allegedly left and returned. Ransom’s fiance said she attempted to get him to leave, but he got out of the vehicle at which time he was approached by a suspect and shot. According to the report, the woman said she did not know the suspect.
Witnesses said the suspects fled on foot in the direction of Grassdale Road and possibly left in a white Chevy Impala with 22-inch rims.
The suspects were described as:
• Dark-skinned black male, 5 feet 10 inches, 250 pounds, short hair, wearing a white T-shirt and jeans.
• Light-skinned black male, 5 feet 7, 180 pounds, “platinum grill on upper and lower teeth,” shoulder-length dreadlocks, wearing a white T-shirt and jeans.
• Dark-skinned black male, 6 feet, 220 pounds, “gold grill on upper teeth,” long dreadlocks, wearing a black tank top.
• Dark-skinned black male, 6 feet 3 inches, 180 pounds, short hair, wearing white T-shirt and jeans.
• Light-skinned black male, about 6 feet, 200 pounds, short afro, wearing a white T-shirt and jeans.
Cartersville Police Department Capt. Mark Camp said the suspects had not been located and the names were not available.
