August 6, 2018

HOUMA, La. (AP) — A Louisiana man is accused in a killing in Georgia and a shooting in his hometown.

Houma police tell The Courier and Daily Comet that 20-year-old Jawon Mosley of Houma was arrested early Monday on charges of attempted second-degree murder and being a fugitive.

Police tell the newspapers he’s wanted in DeKalb County, Georgia, in connection with a late-July killing near Atlanta.

The attack in Houma occurred May 24. Police said at the time that a 22-year-old man was shot multiple times. The Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office said in May that Mosley also was accused of shooting an 18-year-old in the leg on May 25.

Details of the Georgia killing were not immediately available.

It was not clear whether Mosley has an attorney who could speak for him.
