Decatur Police are looking for a man accused of firing shots at his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend on Sunday morning.

Police responded to the call at 10:51 a.m. and found the woman and her boyfriend in the 2900 block of East College Avenue.

“The victim reported he and his girlfriend were leaving a hotel in the 900 block of Church Street when they noticed the female victim’s ex-boyfriend parked in the parking lot,” Lt. Jennifer Ross said. “As the victims were loading their vehicle, the suspect exited his vehicle and fired a gunshot toward them. The victims fled in their vehicle and the suspect followed them and fired another gunshot at their vehicle. The suspect also rammed the victim’s vehicle with his vehicle.

“The victims were not sure of the exact location or street names they traveled between Church Street and where they ended up on East College Avenue. Officers observed damage to the victim’s vehicle consistent with gunshots and also recovered physical evidence at the original scene on Church Street. Neither of the victims were physically injured.”

Warrants for two counts of aggravated assault were issued for the suspect, who police identified as Rickeyon Jenkins, 23, of Baxley, Ga.

“Jenkins is approximately 6 feet tall and 175 lbs, slender build, light complexion and has short hair,” Ross said. “Jenkins was last seen wearing a gray jacket and black shorts and driving a silver, 4-door, early-mid 2000’s model Mercury Grand Marquis. If you have information about this case or know the whereabouts of Rickeyon Jenkins, please contact Inv. Hensel at or 678/553-6687 or contact Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta at 404 577-Tips (8477) and remain anonymous.”
