Sunday night shooting leaves woman seriously wounded; two suspects at large


The Griffin Police Department is seeking two suspects in a Sunday night shooting that left one woman with serious injuries.

Officers responded at approximately 8:30 to a call reporting a person shot at 522 Hallyburton St.

The victim, identified as 51-year-old Virginia Sanchez, of 601 Hallyburton St., was initially transported to WellStar Spalding Regional Hospital before being transferred to Atlanta Medical Center.

The residence located at 408 N. 12th St. was also struck by gunfire believed to be a stray bullet, but no one was injured at that location.

Investigators say the shooting resulted from a dispute over a stolen bicycle.

Arrest warrants have been obtained for 16-year-old Rasheed Shareef Redding, who is described only as a black male. He is being sought on charges of aggravated battery, five counts of aggravated assault, criminal trespass with damage to property, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and possession of a firearm by a person under 18 years of age.

Also wanted is Michael Marquavious Jester, an 18-year-old male, who has been charged with aggravated battery, five counts of aggravated assault and criminal trespass with damage to property.

Anyone with information regarding the suspects’ whereabouts is asked to contact GPD Investigator Adam Trammel at 770.229.6450 extension 526 or Spalding County 911.
