Gwinnett Police are still looking for a man who is accused of shooting an Atlanta man last Wednesday at a home in Buford.
Cedric Buffington is wanted on charges of aggravated assault and convicted felon in possession of a firearm, but he was not in custody as of Tuesday morning, according to a GCPD.
The victim, Erron Butler, 27, was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center of Gwinnett EMS. He was reported to be recovering but still in the hospital Tuesday.
According to Tina Dorsey, a woman who identified herself as Butler’s girlfriend, Butler had come to Buford to leave her children with her mother, who lives on Power Avenue and then had gone to visit he cousin, who lives on Roberts Street.
As they walked into the cousin’s house, a man the girlfriend identified as “Scooter” came out, drew a gun and began shooting at them, firing two or three shots.
Butler fell to the ground and “Scooter” got into a red Dodge Charger and drove away.
Several people arrived to help. Dorsey then got in her car and pursue the shooter, until he stopped in the middle of the road on South Waterworks Road near Buford Dam Road and pointed a gun at her. At that point, she turned around and drove back to the scene of the shooting.
Dorsey told police that Scooter had jumped Butler’s brother Adrian earlier and that probably had something to do with it.
The suspect was later identified by police as Cedric Buffington.
