Tayari Cunningham and D’Andre Moore, both of Marietta, have been charged in the shooting of 20-year-old Jermarcus Thompson at Crescent Square Apartments, at 2050 Austell Road.
Both are charged with felony aggravated assault with a weapon and felony battery disfigurement.
Cobb Police Sgt. Dana Pierce confirmed two arrests had been made in the case.
Moore is the accused shooter and faces an additional charge of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Thompson was shot three times by Moore, according to an arrest warrant, once in the forearm and twice in the lower left back, causing damage to his kidney, pancreas, spleen, liver, diaphragm, colon and stomach.
According to the warrant, Thompson underwent two surgeries at WellStar Kennestone Hospital to repair damage to internal organs.
Cunningham is accused of attempting to lure Thompson from his apartment, telling him he needed to “come down because there is some people that want to see him,” according to the warrant.
Thompson ran to the back door of his apartment, the warrant said, and when he turned the corner, he saw Moore being given a handgun by an unknown man. Police say Moore then fired the gun at Thompson, striking him three times.
