No one got hit.
That may be the most surprising part of 18 year old Jamarlin Latson’s story.
A gun battle in the middle of the day, in the middle of an apartment complex.
Now the man who Garden City police say was in the middle of the action, is wanted.
“No regard for public safety he’s a danger to the public as well as himself,” explains Garden City Detective Armando Villegas.
The pictures from that February day at the Pines Apartments prove it.
The man accused of making many of those bullet holes, Jamarlin Latson.
“He’s 18, i don’t think he’s thinking of the consequences,” explained Villegas.
Police say there was a shootout February 5 in the parking lot of the apartment complex. The worst part about it there was a bus coming up full of kids when those shots were being fired.
“There were students coming home from school,” said the Detective. “So there were parents waiting in the breezeways and parking lots. There was some traffic coming in and out of the community.”
Jamarlin Latson is 6′ 205 lbs. He could be in Garden City, or hiding with friends or family on Savannah’s Southside, possibly near Derenne ave and Skidaway road.
