An 18-year-old Talmo resident is being held in the Hall County Jail without bond after he allegedly fired a gun at someone, stole a car and fled from deputies Sunday morning.

According to a release from the Hall County Sheriff’s Office, Cody Brock, 18, of Talmo, allegedly broke into a home on Reece Circle while the 16-year-old grandson of the homeowners was inside the house on a computer.

The 16-year-old grandson knew Brock, who lives in the area, and ran to a neighbor’s house to call 911, according to reports. While Brock was in the house, he broke the glass on a gun case and stole a handgun and the keys to a green Kia that was parked in the driveway, said Maj. Jeff Strickland.

When Brock came out of the house, he shot at a neighbor who tried to confront him in the yard and fled in the green Kia, according to reports.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office placed a lookout on the green vehicle, and spotted Brock driving it north on Ga. 60 near Cottrell Inc.

When the deputies began pursuing Brock, he fired a shot at them through the rear window of the Kia and passed two vehicles on a solid yellow line before surrendering to police one mile later on Leeland Road, according to reports.

Brock is being held at the Hall County Jail without bond. Brock has been charged with burglary, theft by taking of a motor vehicle, aggravated assault, aggravated assault on a police officer, fleeing and attempting to elude and reckless driving. The incident is currently under investigation by the Hall County Sheriff’s Office.
