Simultaneously, other officers encountered 2 other male subjects fleeing the area on foot. Upon seeing the officers, the subjects turned and ran back in the direction they came from and between the apartment buildings. An officer was able to apprehend and detain one of the fleeing subjects, later identified as Zion Ricks. Officers were not able to locate the third suspect at the time.

 

Further investigation and search of the subjects uncovered another firearm, jewelry and a cell phone. When officers ran the tags on the vehicle the suspects drove, it came back as stolen out of Laurens County. Both suspects were transported to the Bulloch County Jail without incident.

2 Arrested on Charges Related to Shots Fired Incident at The Hangout Bar http://statesboropd.com/blog/2-arrested-on-charges-related-to-shots-fired-incident-at-the-hangout-bar/ Mon, 28 Jan 2019 18:21:30 +0000 http://statesboropd.com/?p=2612

Madison Bridges Warren, Community Information Specialist

Statesboro Police Department

25 West Grady Street

Statesboro, Georgia 30458

 

The Statesboro Police Department made 2 arrests on charges related to an incident of shots fired at a local bar.

 

On 1/27/19 at 12:35 am, a group of officers of the Statesboro Police Department’s Patrol Bureau were doing paperwork in a parking lot off Georgia Avenue when they heard what sounded like multiple shots fired in the 100 block of Lanier Drive. While responding to the area officers observed a male subject, carrying a firearm, run across Lanier Drive from the direction of The Hangout Bar and Grill and enter a vehicle in a Georgia Southern dorm parking lot. When the 3 subjects complied with commands to get out of the vehicle, officers observed the original male subject, later identified as Damien Barrett, throw the firearm into a wooded area in an attempt to dispose of it. The firearm was recovered and came back as stolen when officers ran the serial number. Further investigation revealed that Barrett did fire shots during the incident at The Hangout. Barrett was placed under arrest and transported to the Bulloch County Jail.

 

Simultaneously, officers stopped 4 subjects attempting to leave the scene in a vehicle. Further investigation revealed that one male subject, later identified as Ja’shaad Durrell Calhoun, had prescription drugs in his possession illegally and was carrying a firearm at the time. Calhoun was arrested on scene without incident.

 

Fortunately no one suffered gunshot injuries as a result of this incident.

 

The responding officers in this incident did an excellent job of swiftly and safely taking control of the situation and identifying the suspect. Chief of Police Mike Broadhead says of their work, “Violent acts like this simply cannot be tolerated in a civil society. This casual disregard for the safety of other members of our community is disturbing. I am incredibly proud of our patrol officers who responded immediately, identified a suspect and took him into custody without injury or harm to officers or suspects. This is professional policing at its finest.”
