Detectives Investigate Shooting at Hiram Home Depot


(Paulding County, GA) On Friday May 3, 2019 at approximately 8:47 AM Paulding Deputies and Hiram Police Officers responded to the Home Depot in Hiram, Georgia (145 Depot Drive Hiram, Georgia 30141) reference a shooting call that took place inside the store.


When Deputies and Officers responded to the scene, they quickly located the shooter and took him into custody and secured the scene.  At this point neither the shooter nor the victim are being identified by Detectives.  The victim was subsequently taken to an Atlanta area hospital with a gunshot wound to the torso. 


As soon as they arrived, Detectives began speaking with the witnesses, Home Depot employees, as well as the victim and the shooter to try and determine what took place.  As a result of their investigation Detectives learned that the incident began in the Garden Center of the store.  It was determined that the victim and the shooter both knew each other because they are neighbors and that they have had disagreements in the past.  They coincidently happened to see each other at The Home Depot Friday morning and that is when a verbal argument began. 


The verbal argument escalated into a physical altercation which led to the eventual shooter being physically assaulted.  As the confrontation escalated, they entered the store.  As a result of the altercation and the fact that the shooter felt threatened, he discharged his pistol striking the victim in the torso.  The victim was able to get to the Customer Service Center to have someone call 911.  Both the shooter and the victim stayed on scene and have been cooperative with Detectives.  Thus far, Detectives have not filed any charges in this case and the victim is considered to be in critical condition. 


It must be noted that none of the parties involved worked at The Home Depot and were only there shopping.  This is an open and active investigation and will continue into the coming days.  At this point, we do not expect to have any updates before Monday May 6, 2019.

Paulding couple arrested for
May 2018 murder of infant girl

(Paulding County, GA) On May 18, 2018 at approximately 7:10 AM Paulding Deputies responded to 83 Bensinger Court Hiram, Georgia 30141 reference to an unconscious 3 month old female juvenile. When Deputies responded to the scene, they were told that the child had issues with her heart from the time she was born.

The child was immediately transported to Wellstar Paulding Hospital where she later passed away.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) conducted an autopsy on the infant, which is typical in cases like these. The GBI ultimately concluded that the infant died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head. They further stated that the blunt force in which caused the infant’s death, was ruled non-accidental.

As soon as this incident occurred, Detectives with the Crimes Against Children Unit of the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office began working the case. This investigation was conducted in conjunction with the GBI and took quite some time due to the nature of the case.

As a result of their extensive investigation, the following individuals were arrested on April 18, 2019 in connection to the death of the infant:

Jason Andrew Gromer, W-M, 37
Tanya Atkinson, B-F, 26 YOA
Jason Andrew Gromer W/M, 37 YOA
-Murder (F)
-Aggravated Battery (F)
Tanya Atkinson B/F, 26 YOA
-Murder (F)
-Aggravated Battery (F)

Atkinson is the biological mother of the infant and Gromer is the “live-in” boyfriend and is not the biological father of the child.

Atkinson has two other children who were both living in the home at the time when the incident occurred; those children have since been placed in the Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS) custody.

Both Gromer and Atkinson are being held in the Paulding County Jail without bond. Detectives encourage anyone who might have information on this case to please contact them at (770) 445-6105.

Four year old shoots six year old sister in Seven Hills

09 Apr 2019

Posted by PUBBY in Fastread page

After the big game, I was watching CBS 46 and saw this report. Apparently a four-year old boy discovered one of his parents gun and discharged the gun shooting his six year old sister.  This happened on Laurelcrest Lane in the Seven Hills area Monday late in the afternoon.  The little girl is reported to be in critical condition.


I suspect folks will be hearing about this on the ATL morning shows.




6 Year Old Girl Severely Wounded in Accidental Shooting


(Paulding County, GA)  On Monday April 8, 2019 at approximately 5:47 PM, Paulding Deputies responded to 158 Laurelcrest Lane Dallas, GA 30132, which is in The Park at Cedarcrest subdivision, reference a child that had been shot.  When Deputies arrived on scene they began rendering aid with other first responders to a 6 year old female juvenile that had a gunshot wound to the head.  As soon as they were able, Fire and EMS personnel transported her to an Atlanta area hospital.


Once Detectives arrived on scene they began speaking with the mother of the children about what took place.  Detectives were able to discover that the family was loading up in their vehicle to leave the home when the car would not start.  The mother exited the vehicle to see if she could figure out what was wrong with the car and that is when she heard the shot. 


Preliminarily, Detectives believe that the 4 year male sibling retrieved a handgun from the console of the vehicle and accidently discharged it striking his 6 year old sister in the head, critically wounding her.  This incident took place inside the vehicle in the driveway of the home.


At this point, the 6 year old victim is in critical condition at an Atlanta area hospital.  Thus far, no charges have been filed in this case.

One dead, another seriously injured in early morning altercation on Mill Lane

One dead, another seriously injured in early morning altercation on Mill Lane

At 3:56 AM on January 27, 2019, Paulding E-911 received a 911 call reference a shooting that had just occurred at 37 Mill Lane Dallas, GA 30157 (Powder Mill Subdivision).

While Deputies were enroute, an alert Trooper with the Georgia State Patrol, who was monitoring the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office radio channel, was in the area of the entrance of Powder Mill Subdivision and Marietta Highway (GA 120 E). While in the area, the Trooper observed a dark in color truck which was driving erratically. The truck then failed to stop at the traffic signal at the aforementioned intersection.

Not knowing whether the truck was fleeing the scene of the shooting or an impaired driver, the Trooper performed a traffic stop on the vehicle. The vehicle eventually stopped in the entrance road to the Walmart (3615 Marietta Highway Dallas, GA 30157). When the vehicle stopped, a black male subject fell out of the vehicle and was bleeding severely.

The Trooper applied pressure to the wound and called for Fire/EMS personnel to assist with the scene. It was later determined that the male had been stabbed during an altercation at 37 Mill Lane.

The stabbing victim was identified as Jeremy Dawan Weatherspoon (B/M, 27 YOA). Weatherspoon was immediately transported to an Atlanta area hospital where he is considered to be in serious condition. Other Deputies responded to the actual scene of the shooting. When they arrived on Mill Lane they discovered a white male who was deceased as a result of multiple gunshot wounds.

The deceased male was identified as Chad Thomas Boltz (W/M, 25 YOA). Detectives with the Criminal Investigations Division of the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office and Agents with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are actively working this case in order to figure out what took place at 37 Mill Lane.

Thus far, Detectives and Agents know that there was some type of altercation at the residence and Weatherspoon was stabbed and Boltz was fatally shot.

Detectives and Agents are actively interviewing witnesses that were at the residence in order to determine what took place at the home early Sunday morning and why it occurred. At this time, Detectives and Agents do not believe there are any other suspects and that Weatherspoon and Boltz were the only two individuals who were involved in the altercation.

This investigation is ongoing and anyone with any information into this incident is urged to contact the Criminal Investigations Division of the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office at (770) 443-3015.
