PELHAM, GA (WALB) -

Pelham Police thought they found the owner of a car that was shot at Wednesday night, but after questioning him, police arrested him. 

They're still looking for the shooter, but they said they've locked up a crack cocaine dealer.

Pelham police investigator Adam Lamb showed up on Mize Street after a couple said they heard gunshots. 

"They were walking down Mize Street and they heard somebody shout, 'Well, I'll just kill all of you,'" said Investigator Adam Lamb.

The couple saw a car zoom off.  When police arrived, they didn't recover anything. 

"Yesterday, we got a tip about an unlicensed driver with possible drugs in the car," said Lamb.

Police pulled over the driver of the car, Shedrick Harris, at a gas station Thursday.

But shortly after they pulled him over, they saw bullet holes in his car.

"So I started questioning the driver," said Lamb.  "I was like, 'Hey, man. Did somebody shoot at you last night, what happened?'  He said, 'No, we bought this car like this. These are months old.' The bullet holes were fresh, there was no rust, and there weren't any kinds of signs of age."

Lamb then said Harris gave officers a false name and date of birth. He was then arrested and placed into handcuffs. 

"He was able to break free from the officer. And they caught him 20 seconds later," said Lamb.

And as they were getting ready to tow his car, officers found a container holding several bags of crack cocaine and a scale.

Harris is now behind bars, charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of drug related objects, giving a false name to officers, obstruction, and driving with a suspended license.

Officers are still investigating to determine who fired the shots on Mize Street Wednesday night. If you have any information, call Pelham Police.
