Warrants issued for suspects after Milledgeville hit and run

Warrants have been issued for two men after a hit and run that happened at the intersection of Dunlap Road and North Columbia Street in Milledgeville Saturday around 7 p.m.

According to an incident report, a blue Tahoe rear-ended a smaller car and led police on a chase to a Wendy's parking lot on North Columbia Street. The report states police saw two men, Calvin Hooks and Jamario Napier, get out of the car and flee on foot towards a neighborhood area. Police pursued the men on foot, and Hooks eventually stopped and was taken into custody.

After a search of the car, a .22 revolver was found in the back seat. The make and model of the gun was covered by a red bandanna and clear tape. The report states the gun had been fired and had to be emptied.

Major John Davis with the Milledgeville Police Department said shots were fired in the air to distract them from searching the car and finding the gun. Davis also said he isn't sure if this incident was gang-related.

Warrants have been issued for Napier and Hooks on charges of obstruction and possession of a firearm. The report states the Georgia State Patrol worked the wreck and will also charge Napier.

Anyone with any additional information regarding this case can call the police department at 478-414-4000.
