ALPHARETTA, Ga. – An Alpharetta man is wanted in connection with the shooting of another man Sept. 24 in Alpharetta.

Police say residents of Planter’s Ridge Lane, off Cumming Street, reported hearing gunshots about 3:22 a.m. Police responded and found the victim shot multiple times outside a home.

He was taken to North Fulton Hospital and is listed in stable condition. He is expected to survive.

“We are looking for a shooter who fled on foot,” said Alpharetta Public Safety Spokesman George Gordon.

The suspect is 32-year-old Timothy C. Pierce, a.k.a. “AHK.” Pierce drives a silver 2000 four-door Honda Accord with tag PMC 5633. He is wanted for aggravated battery, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

He is considered armed and dangerous.

“He is on the run,” said Gordon.

Police searched his last known address and found him missing.

“A significant number of law enforcement officers in the metro area are looking for him,” Gordon said.

Police are waiting until the victim is cleared at the hospital before questioning him. They believe it was a one-on-one crime.

The neighborhood is across the street from Manning Oaks Elementary School. The school was on lockdown for much of that day.
