Three of the about 10 semi-automatic weapon bullet holes that hit a Crown Victoria during a gunfight Thursday at the closed Kitty’s Flea Market were through the front windshield.
ALBANY — Ladarion Cardae Harmon, 21, of Albany, was arrested in connection with a gunfight at Kitty’s Flea Market Thursday, said a Dougherty County Police Department official.
“He is charged with three counts of aggravated assault,” said police Capt. Jimmy Sexton. “There were three men in the car, one was not injured.”
Dominique Simmons, 17, of Albany, was uninjured. Also Albany residents, John Perkins, 20, and Hubert Williams, 23, suffered gunshot wounds from a semi-automatic weapon, Sexton added. Perkins was released Thursday and Williams is in fair condition, said a Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital spokeswoman.
The gunfight at the closed flea market started after the Crown Victoria and a blue-purple Honda Accord driven by Harmon stopped chasing each other and pulled into the rear entrance.
“There was an altercation,” Sexton said, “then they started shooting.”
In a strange twist, the three men drove to the hospital after the gunfight in the gunshot-riddled Ford. Harmon took off. Later, two women showed up at the hospital in the Honda that sustained one bullet hole.
“We placed them in custody,” Sexton said, “and after interviewing them they were let go.”
Sexton declined to name the women. He didn’t say why they were at the hospital or if they led police to Harmon. The case remains under investigation with more charges pending.
