Argument between mechanic, tow truck driver leads to shooting in N. Fayette


By Josh Akeman

An altercation escalated quickly over the weekend, with one man ending up shot in the ankle and both men charged with crimes.
According to the Fayette County Sheriff's Office, a fight occurred in the evening on Sunday between David Wayne Sharp, 48, of Senoia and Terrence Barnes, 27, of College Park at a business along Highway 85 North on the northern end of the county.
Sharp, a tow truck driver, had been called by a third party to retrieve a car and bring it to Barnes, a mechanic. The Sheriff's Office did not have the details of the ensuing argument, but it became heated enough that Barnes allegedly punched Sharp, prompting Sharp to pull out a gun and shoot Barnes once in the ankle area.
A witness, one of several, called 911 and the two waited for authorities to arrive.
Sharp was charged with Aggravated Assault.
Barnes was treated for his non-life threatening injury and charged with Battery.
