MEDIA RELEASE

 

For Immediate Release                                                                              March 13, 2018

Man Arrested for Attempt to Murder

 

Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:

 

 

            The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office has been investigating a shooting that happened back in December of 2017 at a residence on Short Cut Drive in Henagar. The investigation led Investigators to Mark Shane Tucker, 41 of Flat Rock. Investigators obtained an attempt of murder warrant for his arrest shortly after the shooting in December of 2017.

            This has been an ongoing investigation, however, last month the DeKalb County Investigators got a break in the case. Mark Shane Tucker had been arrested in Louisiana for unknown charges. Tucker has been extradited back to the DeKalb County Detention Center on the warrant of attempt of murder and is awaiting trial.

            Sheriff Harris says “the Investigators have put in long hours on this case, and has done a great job on the investigation. We are also glad that we have Tucker in custody.”
