Second Man Arrested, Charged In Shooting Near Atlanta University Center
Authorities say a second man has been arrested in a shooting that wounded four people at a block party outside an Atlanta college library in August.
Ahmad Coleman, 25, was arrested Thursday by U.S. Marshals in Mississippi and now awaits extradition.
Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos said Coleman is charged with criminal attempt to commit murder and aggravated assault in the Aug. 20 shooting near the Atlanta University Center library.
The celebration of a new semester and end of student orientation allegedly culminated in an argument in which gunshots were fired into a crowd of 200 people.
Two women were treated for bullet wounds, while two others were grazed by bullets.
Authorities believe Coleman exchanged gunfire with 21-year-old Isaiah Williams, who was arrested last month on similar charges.
Atlanta police Capt. Jackie Gwinn-Villaroel said Coleman was out on signature bond for a previous shooting incident in March.
