4 people shot in historic Roswell, suspect arrested

ROSWELL — Police have made an arrest after four people were injured by gunfire Sunday morning after a disagreement that started in a Roswell hookah bar continued outside.

Authorities charged 39-year-old Jacob Weaver with seven counts of Aggravated Assault and one count of Armed Robbery.

According to Roswell Police Spokeswoman Lisa Holland, a fight broke out at the Moon Hookah Bar and Restaurant on Atlanta Street around 4 a.m. Managers at the restaurant kicked the suspect out, following the fight, but police say the suspect stayed in the parking lot.

Officials say the suspect then followed a minivan carrying seven people – including some of the individuals who got into the argument – out onto the street before the minivan and the suspect's car both pulled over say at a parking lot at the intersection of Atlanta Street and King Street in Historic Roswell. When they did, that's when police say the suspect got out of his car and fired at least 15 shots into the van, striking four people.

Neighbor Janet Russell lives close to where the gunshots rang out in the usually quiet area.

"I've lived in my house 43 years and this is the first time," she said. "It's surprising, but nothing surprises me anymore."

Police said the four victims were transferred to North Fulton Hospital with non life-threatening injuries, and no one was killed in the gunfire. 

After the shooting, the suspect ran away from the scene, but was later caught in Sandy Springs. Police have taken the suspect into custody and charged him in the shooting.

Police identify the victims as Dustin Charles Welch, 31, Tyler William Grave, 32, Sky Lisio, 37, and Tawnesha Harris, 40.

The investigation is still ongoing.
