RCSO offers reward for information about shots fired in Honey Creek

CONYERS — The Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office is offering a cash award for any information that leads to an arrest in the shootings at Honey Creek subdivision last week.

A number of shots were reported by residents as being fired in the overnight hours of Wednesday, March 26, in the area of Golfcrest Drive and Clubland Circle.

Deputies who responded at the time were unable to find anything, but by daylight, a neighbor walking his dogs found eight bullet casings on the street and driveway of a home on Clubland Circle, according to an incident report filed by the Sheriff’s Office.

RCSO deputies who returned to the scene found a total of 16 casings. The Sheriff’s Office reported it can account for 10 of the bullets striking a house, shed, tree and vehicle in the area.

One witness told deputies that she was driving on Clubland Circle around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, around the time the shots were heard. She said she saw a black car with its lights off driving very slowly on Honey Creek. It then turned into a church parking lot. She told deputies that she saw a man wearing a hat and faded or bleached jeans running across the street and get into the car.

“As of yet, no suspects or victims have been identified. However, due to the seriousness of the crime, the RCSO is prepared to offer a cash reward for more information about this incident that leads to an arrest,” said Sheriff Eric Levett.

Anyone with information can contact the RCSO case investigator directly at 770-278-8157. Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling 770-278-8188.

In other news, the RCSO is seeking five black males and one black female who are believed to have jumped a 17-year-old who was walking across the Heritage High School parking lot around 9 p.m. March 27 after a school sporting event. The suspects punched him and stole his cell phone. The suspects then left in two vehicles, a white Toyota Sequoia and a black Chevrolet Tahoe.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact RCSO Investigator Grote Levett at 770-278-8165 or by email at grote.levett@rockdalecounty.org.
