·1 min read

May 26—The man police say shot into a neighbor's Marietta home after being told he wasn't allowed into a party has been captured in Arkansas, according to the Cobb County Police Department.

Authorities announced late Tuesday that Cody Demmitt had been captured. The announcement came three days after police say he injured one man when he shot "multiple rounds" into a home on Westchase Drive at around 11:30 p.m. on Saturday. Police said he faces charges of aggravated assault.

When police arrived at the home on Saturday, they found a man with a gunshot wound to the shoulder, according to Officer S.A. Barner, a spokesperson for the Cobb County Police Department.

Barner said that man was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Detectives said Demmitt fled the scene before police arrived.

Police department spokesman Sgt. Wayne Delk said he could not speak to the events that led up to Demmitt's capture in Arkansas, but he did say Arkansas State Police and the FBI were involved in the capture.

In terms of whether or when he'd be returned to Cobb to face charges, Delk said his appearance in the county "is dependent on circumstances that would best be answered by court personnel and/or the District Attorney's office regarding any new charges he has in other states/jurisdictions."'

The MDJ has contacted the Cobb County District Attorney's Office and Arkansas State Police for comment on Demmitt's arrest and charges.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to call Cobb County Police at 770-499-3945.
