A Gainesville teenager is charged with shooting at another vehicle after an alleged drug deal turned sour, according to authorities.
Bryce Cameron Byrd, 17, is charged with reckless conduct and discharging a firearm near a public roadway after an alleged incident Sunday.
Hall County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded Sunday to Clarks Bridge Road on a call of shots fired from a vehicle.
“The investigation revealed that the occupants of the suspect vehicle, including Mr. Byrd, met the occupants of the complainant’s vehicle at a location to purchase marijuana, but the deal apparently went bad,” Sheriff’s Office Deputy Stephen Wilbanks wrote in a news release.
Wilbanks said the vehicle occupied by Byrd drove southbound on Clarks Bridge Road while Byrd allegedly “fired two shots from a revolver in the direction of the complainant’s vehicle.”
No injuries or property damage was reported.
Deputies searched the suspect vehicle, finding a revolver, marijuana and “marijuana related devices,” Wilbanks said.
Byrd was arrested and also charged with possession of marijuana and drug-related objects. He was booked in to the Hall County Jail. He was no longer listed in the online jail records Tuesday evening.
