VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –An early morning raid by Valdosta Police, the FBI Gang Task Force, and probation officers led to the arrests of five more suspects in a double shooting.

A 26-year old woman and a 9-year old boy were shot in the legs March 20th on Claudia Circle as they ran for cover when gunshots were fired.

On Tuesday, investigators charged 23-year old Gilbert Grier with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

They say the shooter gave him the gun after the shooting.

Grier, 31-year old Jeff Ferguson, and 22-year old Antonio Gifford are charged with party to the crime of aggravated assault.

Those three and 24-year old Adam Bridges and 17-year old Brandon James are also charged under the State Gang Crime Act.

"The green John Deere car was seized and will be turned over to the state and wanted to just add to that as a stance of the Valdosta Police Department that anytime anybody's determined to be involved in gang related crimes anything that they use that we're able to seize we're going to seize it," said Valdosta Police Lt. Aaron Kirk.

22-year old Nicholas Hill was previously arrested on aggravated assault charges for firing the shots.

Those other arrests were made at 6:30 Tuesday morning.
