Winder man allegedly shot two women and faces kidnapping charges

Winder police arrested a man who they say shot two women and fled to South Carolina.

Winder Police Capt. Chris Cooper said officers responded to the area of Sweet Gum Lane Monday morning to find a 23-year old woman with gunshot wounds.

An investigation led detectives to believe Ralph Jones Jr., 27, was also holding a 20-year old female against her will.

After putting out a lookout for him, officers in Oconee County, South Carolina discovered his car with the 20-year old woman inside with a gunshot wound.

They arrested Jones shortly after.

The condition of both women is not known at this time.

Jones will be extradited back to Georgia and faces charges with 2 counts of Aggravated Assault-Family Violence, 2 counts of Aggravated Battery-Family Violence and 1 count of Kidnapping.

He will await a bond hearing at the Barrow County Detention Center.
