A Marietta man accused of shooting two people early Sunday was arrested nearly 90 miles away in Franklin County.
William Dennis Devore, 41, of Marietta, was trying to flee the state after allegedly shooting David Fouquart and Laniqua White at 1:20 a.m. Sunday inside a residence in the 1800 block of North Milford Creek Lane, according to a Cobb County criminal warrant.
Fouquart, 46, was shot in the head, side and rear with a .22 caliber handgun. White, 33, was shot in the head. One of the bullets entered near Fouquart's right eye and exited the top of his head, leaving a hole at the top of Fouquart's head, according to the warrant.
Fouquart is at WellStar Kennestone Hospital, but an official wouldn't release his condition due to patient privacy laws. The hospital had no record of White this afternoon.
Franklin County authorities were notified that Devore might be in Carnesville, and a deputy drove to the Petro Truck Stop off Interstate 85 about 8:30 a.m. Sunday, Sheriff Steve Thomas told Patch this afternoon. The deputy, who was in an unmarked pickup, spotted Devore’s vehicle at the truck stop.
While waiting for backup to arrive, the deputy saw Devore moving around in the car. To make sure Devore didn't go in the building, the deputy approached the car and handcuffed him, Thomas said. The deputy found two guns, including the one allegedly used in the shooting.
Officer Mike Bowman, the spokesman for the Cobb County Police Department, said that the agency could not discuss what led to the shooting or what the relationship between the suspects and the victims might have been.
"This is still an ongoing investigation," he said.
Devore is back in Cobb. Currently, he is in the Cobb County Jail without bond on charges that include two counts of aggravated assault and one count of aggravated battery. All are felonies.
