A suspect remains at large in the case of a drive-by shooting at a home on a south Gainesville street Saturday, June 30.

No one was injured in the incident.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office deputies, Gainesville Police and Georgia State Patrol’s Aviation Unit responded to the scene about 11:20 a.m. at the 40 block of Stallworth Street.

The car, a gray Nissan Maxima, was spotted and pulled over in the 34 block of Dean Street. Jeffery Scott Moss, 27, of Gainesville fled from the vehicle and is still being sought in connection with the shooting.

Investigators obtained arrest warrants for Moss for criminal attempt of aggravated assault and criminal damage to property. They recovered a handgun from the vehicle.

A witness, who did not want to be identified, told The Times he heard five or six shots as the driver stopped outside a home on Stallworth Street. The witness was sitting outside on the steps to his home a few houses down at the time of the incident.

The witness said the driver drove away, then returned and drove by the home again, and pulled into the witness’ driveway.

“He yelled out the window, ‘Where’s he at?'” the witness said, adding that the driver turned the car around and went by the home one more time.

The witness said no one was outside the home where the shots were fired, but there were residents sitting outside a home across the street.

Anyone with information regarding this case or information on Moss’ whereabouts is asked to call 911. This case remains under investigation by the Hall County Sheriff’s Office.
