Griffin man arrested for discharging firearm during search for suspects


A Griffin man was arrested Feb. 17, when he allegedly fired a weapon during a law enforcement search for suspects in a string of entering auto incidents.

Alvin Lee Guild III, age 28, of 735 Bieze St, faces one count each of discharge of firearms on or near public highway and reckless conduct.

According to GPD Officer Kyle Bradford, officers in the area head a gun shot and then observed a vehicle fleeing the scene, but they were unable to locate that vehicle.

Officers then responded to 735 Bieze St., to a report of shots fired.

Bradford reported that upon arrival, he spoke with Taylor Dunn, who stated he and his friends were hanging out at the residence when Guild, who was reportedly under the influence of alcohol, got into an altercation with his ex-girlfriend, Morgan Kendrick.

“Dunn stated Guild was threatening to kill himself and went out behind the house and shot off a rifle outside,” Bradford reported. “Dunn stated Guild then fled in a blue in color Mustang and returned upon seeing police officers in the area.”

Bradford then made contact with Jeffery Daniel, McKenna Edenfield and Kendrick.
Bradford said this trio gave the same information as Dunn.

“They advised me Guild may be inside the residence, but that they were not sure. I asked Kendrick if she minded if we went inside the residence to attempt to locate Guild,” Bradford reported. “Kendrick stated she would take us inside the residence to the last place that Guild was hiding. Officer Michel and I entered the residence with Kendrick. When we got inside the back bedroom of the residence, Officer Michel observed Guild hiding under the bed.”

Guild, who was handcuffed, allegedly told officers he accidentally discharged his weapon.

Bradford reported Guild said he accidentally fired his gun behind the residence.

He said after Mirandizing Guild, the suspect agreed to speak with him and reported he had consumed approximately six alcoholic beverages.

“Guild stated he went out behind the house and shot his AK-47 off by accident. Guild stated he left in his Mustang, but when he noticed police, he turned back behind the house. Guild struck the side of the house with his car when he was pulling into his yard,” Bradford said.

A rifle was recovered from the passenger seat of a blue Mustang parked behind the house, and Guild was transported to the Spalding County Jail.
