The LaGrange Police Department is looking for a man who allegedly fired multiple rounds into a vehicle on Lanett Avenue.

The suspect is Jacob Ryan Tarwater and warrants have been issued for his arrest for two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of possession of a firearm in the commission of certain crimes and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The LPD responded to a call of shots fired on Thursday around 6:40 p.m. and officers met with two victims, who reported a white male with multiple tattoos had fired into the 2017 Honda Accord they were driving. The victims said they had stopped to intervene in an altercation the suspect was having with a female. After firing shots, the suspect fled the scene in a gray Ford Mustang, according to the police report.

The Mustang was recovered on Cooley Road, but Tarwater was not with the vehicle.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the LaGrange Police Department at (706) 883-2603 or to call Troup County Crime Stoppers at (706) 812-1000. Tips may also be submitted to the LaGrange Police Department via Facebook.
