Man faces charges in Valdosta after shooting

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - A man now faces charges for aggravated assault after Valdosta police said he shot at another man while he was drinking.

Valdosta Police arrested Bonafacio Garcia, 23, near the 100 block of Pendelton Avenue.

According to reports, a verbal fight between the two led to the shooting.

This is just one of many gun-related crimes since the beginning of the year.

“I worry about it because a bullet could’ve went anywhere, in somebody’s house, in somebody’s kids, wife, little kids. A bullet could’ve went anywhere into somebody’s house and it would’ve killed them. You know, it would’ve happened just like that, right there," said Valdosta resident Martavius Gray.

According to the Valdosta Police Department, there were no injuries.

This is the fifth shooting in Valdosta since the beginning of the year.
