Georgia man accused of firing shots into vehicle occupied by his ex-girlfriend and child arrested

A 25-year-old man was arrested Thursday after police say he fired multiple shots into a vehicle occupied by his ex-girlfriend and their infant child.

The Henry County Sheriff’s Office in cooperation with The Muscogee County Sheriff’s Office announced the capture of 25-year old Marcus Issaih Calhoun.

According to the sheriff’s office, Calhoun violated a temporary protective order that was active effective March 8, by showing up at his ex-girlfriend’s residence on Aug. 9.

After allegedly causing bodily injury to the victim, law enforcement officials say Calhoun fled on foot. Subsequently, warrants were obtained for aggravated stalking, battery – family violence, robbery by sudden snatching and obstructing or hindering persons making emergency telephone call.

On Aug. 10, law enforcement officials say the suspect approached the victim, once again, while she was at the park with their child.

According to the Henry County Sheriff’s Office, Calhoun then fired several shots into the victim’s vehicle while she was attempting to leave the scene.

On Aug. 11, sheriff’s officials say Calhoun tried to evade arrest by boarding a Greyhound bus en route to Alabama.

Sheriff Scandrett says, “Thank God this young woman and her child were uninjured. In coordination with the Muscogee County Sheriff’s Office and other surrounding agencies, we were able to trail the suspect and safely take him into custody,” said Henry County Sheriff Reginald Scandrett.

A weapon was located in Calhoun’s possession while on the Greyhound bus. Additionally, Calhoun now faces charges for theft by taking, two aggravated assault charges and possession of a firearm or knife during commission of or attempt to commit certain felonies.

He is currently being held in the Henry County Jail.
