The Griffin Police Department has arrested 19-year-old Isaac Burks on charges related to a Saturday night shooting.

Officers of the GPD Uniform Patrol Division at 7:12 p.m. reported hearing approximately ten to 12 gunshots in the vicinity of Lynn Street. After speaking to several people, officers located a vehicle that had been struck by gunfire.

The vehicle, a 2016 Hyundai Elantra, was located at 100 Lynn Lane.

Lt. Daniel Jett said the vehicle was struck twice near the roof. No other damage was attributed to the gunfire.

The GPD Criminal Investigation Division assumed responsibility for the investigation and within a few days had conducted a series of interviews related to the incident.

Burks was on Sept. 1 identified as the alleged suspect.

Investigators obtained warrants for Burks’ arrest and to search his residence.

With the assistance of the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office, a search of Burks’ 115 Marble Court residence was conducted.

Authorities say the search resulted in the seizure of a firearm previously reported stolen.

Burks was taken into custody and transported to the Spalding County Jail where he is being held on charges of reckless conduct, first degree criminal damage to property and theft by receiving a stolen firearm.
