Antwan Johnson

A Decatur man was arrested after allegedly firing six shots into a home on Village Place Circle Monday morning.

According to the Conyers Police Department, Antwan Lafayette Johnson, 21, of Decatur, is suspected of firing six shots from the front yard into the home around 8 a.m.

The 20-year-old resident inside the house, who was unharmed, told authorities he was in the bonus room over the garage when he heard a knocking sound coming from his garage and the power to his home went out. He said he slowly went downstairs and peeked around the wall to look out of his dining room window, at which time the suspect began firing shots, leaving multiple holes in the dining room window and interior wall.

According to the police report, six shell casings were located in the front yard approximately 12 feet from the dining room window.

The relationship between the shooter and the resident is unknown at this time.

Johnson was charged with aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, misdemeanor discharge of a firearm on or near a highway, and misdemeanor discharge of a firearm on the property of another.
