ATLANTA – The family of a man who was shot while jogging over the weekend said he looked forward to returning home.
Ann Warrell said Tom Regan from Channel 2 that she was constantly next to her husband while he recovered from a random shooting.
Andrew Warrell went out for his usual jog on Saturday morning on West Wesley Road in Buckhead, when someone fires a pistol from a passing car, hitting him twice in the thigh and thigh.
The accused shooter, Galen Newsum, went before a judge on Monday morning.
Police said Newsome also shot two other people and set off.
Police said he then crashed into someone taking the garbage to a residential complex, nailing it between the car and the truck.
This 20-year-old man is in critical condition.
A public defender told the judge that Newsome had a mental breakdown that led to the crime.
“Mr. Newsome has been diagnosed with several mental conditions that contributed to incidents that occurred this weekend,” the public defender said.
But the judge vigorously rejected the bond request.
“Given all this and the fact that in this case a reasonable connection must be established, your honor,” said the public defender.
“No bone, no,” the judge said.
Andrew Warrell has been released from the hospital.
Newsome has been charged with several crimes, including attempted murder.
