A Hall man was charged with aggravated assault less than a week after police offered a reward for information on an Athens Street shooting.

Jacques Latron Franks, 33, was charged in connection with a shooting Aug. 20 at Sparkles, an Athens Street club.

Gainesville Police said Terry Maddox Sr. was at the club around 3:30 a.m. Aug. 20 when an argument started.

Franks is accused of “pointing the handgun at him and firing the gun at Maddox multiple times after threatening Maddox,” according to the warrant.

Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta issued a notice Sept. 29 regarding a reward up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment.

Police said Maddox was uninjured. Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said he could not comment further on the case.
