Atlanta: Dad-of-three, 41, is shot twice jogging in Atlanta

Dad-of-three, 41, is shot twice while out jogging in Atlanta’s richest neighborhood Buckhead where residents are fighting for secession and their own police force amid crime explosion

A father-of-three out jogging on Saturday morning in Atlanta’s wealthiest neighborhood, Buckhead, was shot twice by a ‘mentally ill’ man who police say also opened fire on two other people and mowed down a neighbor with his car.  

Atlanta police arrested and charged 22-year-old Gaelen Newsom with attempted murder, three counts of aggravated assault and two counts of possession of a firearm during a crime in connection with the weekend crime spree.  

The first shooting took place in the 1200 block of West Wesley Road in Buckhead, Atlanta’s richest section, which has been making a push to form its own police force and secede from the rest of the city amid skyrocketing crime rates.
