Shotgun pellets hits man's car in Cumming


June 11, 2014
CUMMING, Ga. — A man heard two or three "gun shots," and then heard debris hit the hood of his car, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff's incident report.

A man in 200 block of 15th Street told deputies May 23 he was outside with his family when he heard the debris hit the hood and windshield of his 2002 Ford Explorer.

He said he saw two men outside their home off Darla Avenue at the time of the incident.

Deputies talked to one of the men who said he was shooting at his range behind his home. He said the range has a backdrop that is safe for shooting.

The man did tell deputies he had an accidental discharge of his shotgun in the air and that falling shot is most likely what the caller heard hit his car.

No charges were pressed against the suspect, but he did receive a verbal warning.

    Can you identify who Gomes is in this incident? And isn't there a city ordinance against firing a gun within city limits? I have a backdrop behind my house and would LOVE my own range!
