FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A 28-year-old man is in stable condition in Roswell's North Fulton Hospital after he was shot multiple times overnight Jan. 13.

But the victim still cannot speak.

At about 12:30 a.m. Jan. 13, Forsyth County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call in the Twin Lakes Mobile Home Park, 3300 Shore Dr., off of Ga. Hwy. 9 in Cumming.

Upon arriving, deputies heard a woman screaming and located a man lying on the ground, identified as Aubrey Zander, 28, between two mobile homes with multiple gunshot wounds.

Zander was shot twice, once in his right shoulder area and once in his left rib cage area, according to an incent report.

Deputies rendered aid to the gunshot victim until other emergency responders arrived.

Zander was then transported to North Fulton Hospital.

Upon further investigation, deputies learned that another man at the mobile home park had shot the victim.

James Adams Dunleavy, 26, who lives in the mobile home park, was arrested at the scene.

Dunleavy was charged with aggravated assault and taken to the Forsyth County Detention Center.

"This was an argument over loud music," said Rick Doyle, director of operations for the sheriff's office.

The complaint over loud music turned into a verbal altercation that escalated into a physical confrontation and then a shooting, Doyle said.

Dunleavy's attorney, Rafe Banks, told news organizations his client was defending himself and his "actions were entirely justified by Georgia statutory provisions concerning self-defense and the defense of a habitation."

Zander underwent surgery and was first listed in critical and later to stable condition, but still cannot speak.

No other persons were injured.

The shooting remains under investigation by the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division.

Dunleavy bonded out Monday afternoon, Jan. 14, with a $44,440 cash bond.

He is scheduled to appear in Superior Court Feb. 6.
