According to Maj. Dwayne Jones, a warrant was served, and Redding was arrested by agents of the SCSO Criminal Apprehension and Gang Enforcement (CAGE) Unit.

He has been transported to the Griffin Police Department.

Griffin Police Department investigators have obtained warrants against Redding 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.

A second suspect, 18-year-old Michael Marquavious Jester, was arrested Monday. He is charged with aggravated battery, five counts of aggravated assault and criminal trespassing with damage to property.

The GPD alleges the shooting resulted from a dispute over a stolen bicycle.
