A Talmo man was arrested on assault charges after a shooting that occurred Saturday at a gas station in Jackson County. Terry Lynn Seagraves, 47, was booked into the Jackson County jail on at 2:58 p.m. May 31 on charges of aggravated assault (x3), aggravated battery, aggravated assault family violence act, possession of a firearm or knife while trying to commit crimes, criminal attempt to commit murder (all felonies) and one misdemeanor battery charge. His bail is not set. A witness saw commotion after the shooting at the Texaco gas station on Hwy. 124 in Hoschton.
According to the sheriff’s office, deputies responded to the store to discover a male had been shot outside and had moved inside the store. The suspect, found in the parking lot, was detained after a female witness pointed him out to deputies as the shooter. The female identified Seagraves as the shooter and said he tried to run her and the male victim off the road several times.
She said she drove her vehicle into the parking lot of the Texaco to reach a more populated area, when Seagraves approached the passenger side of the vehicle, shooting the male passenger in the lower part of his body. Seagraves then ordered the victim out of the vehicle and to get down on his knees. Seagraves then threw the gun in the back of his truck and grabbed a baseball bat, following the victim into the store and then assaulted the victim with the bat.
Seagraves was leaving the store when deputies arrived. He remains in the Jackson County jail with no bond.
