Cherokee Sheriff’s deputies responded to a “shots fired call” Tuesday afternoon, May 10, on Carmichael Circle in the Carmichael Farms subdivision. When deputies arrived, they observed five shell casings in the roadway.

Deputies made contact with the homeowner who was inside the home at the time of the incident. The homeowner advised she had no idea who would have shot at her house or why.

The home was struck five times. One of the rounds entered through a window, and the bullet was located in a walk-in closet. No one inside the home was injured.

A light blue Mazda 6 was captured on video driving by the house as the shots were fired.

Detectives began an investigation into the incident and were able to identify a possible suspect who resides in Cartersville, Ga.

Friday afternoon, CSO detectives and the Cherokee County Multi-Agency SWAT team went to a residence on Catherine Way in Cartersville where they arrested 29-year-old Timothy Gregory.

Three firearms were located inside Gregory’s home, one matched the caliber of the shell casings located on Carmichael Circle. The motive of the shooting remains under investigation.

Gregory went to high school with one of the owners of the home, but it doesn’t appear they have had any contact since that time.

Gregory is charged with Aggravated Assault, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Discharging a Firearm near a Road, Criminal Damage to Property 1st Degree, and Unauthorized Use of a License Plate. He is currently in the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center without bond.
