Federal agents on Friday arrested a 21-year-old Macon man who allegedly attempted to kill his girlfriend when she wanted to end their relationship.
Davares Jerrelle Evans was arrested at an apartment in the 700 block of Tidewater Circle, according to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office. He was charged with criminal attempt to commit murder in the 2013 shooting of Sierra Scott, of Macon, officials said. He was also charged with failure to appear and violation of probation, deputies said.
Investigators said on Dec. 3 Evans went to a home in the 1200 block of West Granada Terrace where his girlfriend at the time lived. Evans allegedly shot Scott once in the hand after she told Evans she wanted to end the relationship with him and had asked him to leave her home, the sheriff’s spokeswoman Deputy Linda Howard said.
Witnesses identified Evans as the shooter, Howard said. The 21-year-old was transported to Bibb County Sheriff’s Criminal Investigative Division for questioning and then to the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center where he is presently being held.
