The indictments were announced Friday.
Nehemiah Terrence Hagwood, 24, of Orlando, Fla., was arrested last month in Villa Rica at the QuikTrip gas station on Highway 61. He was detained hours after allegedly robbing and shooting a man near the CNN Center in Atlanta.
Hagwood, who was denied bond earlier this week, has been indicted on more than eight counts in Carroll County, including hijacking a motor vehicle, entering automobile, fleeing an officer and aggravated assault on a police officer.
He is also expected to be charged with four crimes in Atlanta, including robbery and aggravated assault for the alleged shooting.
Hagwood is being represented on the Carroll County charges by public defender Rebecca Dembkowski.
Officers were called to the gas station in November and were told Hagwood was armed with a handgun. When police arrived, the suspect would not comply with the officers’ commands and told them the gun was in the seat of the vehicle, according to the police report.
As the officers were trying to get Hagwood away from the van, he suddenly got in and fled the scene, according to the report.
Officer Jacob Brown spotted the vehicle leaving the gas station and gave chase, following a path that led officers north on Highway 101, Rockmart Road, Main Street and Highway 78 before the suspect crashed the van behind the Villa Rica Elementary School, then fled the scene on foot.
Sgt. Kevin Carroll located the suspect in the kudzu behind the soccer fields and took him into custody. A gun was found in the kudzu where Hagwood was hiding, according to police.
Witnesses said Hagwood had earlier shot one man in the hip in a parking lot outside the CNN Center in Atlanta.
According to reports, Atlanta police arrived after being called by the victim and chased the attacker, but lost the mini-van he was driving on the western side of the city.
Once he was arrested in Villa Rica, police said they found several IDs inside the van, including the Atlanta shooting victim’s. They also recovered the handgun believed to have been used in both crimes.
Also indicted by the special grand jury were Peggy Sanford, 52, and Brenda Edgens, 53, who were arrested in July and charged with unlawful neglect of a disabled adult.
Officers found the disabled female victim in a closet when they went to the Carrollton home to serve a warrant on someone who, it turned out, no longer lived there.
The 57-year-old victim, who was discovered in a closet in the mobile home where the two suspects were staying, was in “poor condition,” police said, and appeared to be suffering from severe malnutrition.
Officers called for an ambulance, and the victim was taken to Tanner Medical Center, where she recovered.
Edgens and Sanford were staying in the former home of another person the officers were looking for during their arrest warrant round-up in July.
