The victim told police both drivers were heading down the highway near the Salem Road exit not long after morning rush hour when the victim said there was an exchange of words and gestures before one driver started shooting.

The victim, who hasn’t been identified, was able to give a good description of the suspect and help police identify him as 21-year-old Wessoloski Kelly.


Police said any of the bullets Kelly fired at the victim could have been fatal, but luckily, they just hit his truck.

“The rounds went into the passenger-side door, which is right across from where the driver was sitting in the vehicle,” police said.

Authorities said Kelly drives a black 2014 Dodge Charger with the Georgia license plate number RTG 1207. He has ties to Covington and the Greenbriar Mall area near Atlanta.

Investigators said they have talked to Kelly, who said he was going to turn himself in, but so far he hasn’t.

Anyone with information regarding Kelly’s whereabouts is asked to call 404-577-8477. Police are offering a $2,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
