A 33 year-old homeless Rome man, Demetrius Marquis Hunter, 33 of Rome,  was arrested this week after being on the run for nearly 6 years following a shooting at the El Patron Bar on Redmond Circle.

Police said that on May 28, 2017 Hunter was accused of discharging a firearm at the El Patron Bar on Redmond Circle.  He then fled the scene before officers arrived.

Reports went on to say that Hunter was found on May 3, 2018 and proceeded to lead officers in both a car and foot chase.

Officers added that a search of his car at the scene resulted in them finding over 4 ounces of marijuana.

Hunter was finally apprehended this week at 520 Ashland Park.

Hunter is charged with possession of marijuana, discharging a firearm on the property of another, reckless conduct, disorderly conduct and four counts of failure to appear.
