LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (TCD) — Police have arrested a man on suspicion of shooting his ex-girlfriend and her son this week in what officers called a “domestic-related” incident.
According to a news release from the Gwinnett County Police Department, on Tuesday, Nov. 7, shortly before 10:30 p.m., officers responded to a home on Dayspring Trace in reference to a domestic dispute. Police parked their cars a few residences away and heard gunshots coming from the driveway as they approached the home on foot.
Police said they observed a man fleeing the area via car. In the driveway, officers located two shooting victims, a 44-year-old woman and her 20-year-old son. WSB-TV reports that the victims sustained gunshot wounds to the head.
Officers attempted lifesaving measures until the Gwinnett County Fire Department arrived. The victims were transported to local hospitals, where they remain in critical condition.
Police identified Terrance Washington, the female victim’s ex-boyfriend, as the primary suspect. Washington faces two counts of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and theft by taking. Police arrested Washington several hours after the shooting and booked him into the Houston County Jail.
