Man Who Shot His Son In The Chest Captured By SHERIFF VICTOR HILL’S Elite Fugitive Squad

Earlier today a man identified as Larry Coakley got into a domestic dispute with his son and subsequently shot him in the chest area of his body.   Coakley‘ son is reportedly in stable condition.


Coakley drove to Dekalb County and had a family member drive him to the DeKalb County jail where he attempted to turn himself in.  Somehow officials let Coakley go when they ran his name and he did not come back wanted.  When the Fugitive Squad arrived, DeKalb Officials told them what direction Coakley went walking towards.   The Fugitive Squad found  Coakley about a mile away on Covington Rd and took him into custody without incident.


Coakley is now facing the wall at Georgia’s toughest para-military jail better known as “The Hill-ton”.
