Man Arrested in Gas Station Shooting

On December 18, 2019, members of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Texaco located at 2195 Fairburn Road in reference to an individual discharging a firearm. While at the scene a male arrived at Douglas Wellstar Hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The investigation concluded that three individuals drove to the Texaco to purchase marijuana from Christopher Menjivar. During the transaction, Menjivar fired a weapon at their vehicle striking one of the passengers. Menjivar fled the scene, but was located by investigators the following day in Cobb County. Menjivar was arrested and charged with three counts of Aggravated Assault with a deadly weapon.

A quick shout out to all our deputies and investigators involved in identifying and apprehending the perpetrator so quickly, once again, GREAT JOB!!!
