A Roswell man accused of shooting two other men outside a residence in south Roswell in late June was arrested Friday night in the southeast part of the city.

George Alley, 20, is charged with two counts of aggravated battery and one count of aggravated assault in connection with a June 27 incident in which he allegedly shot two 18-year-old men in the 90 block of West Byrne Street. The two victims survived.

Roswell Police Department officers located Alley inside a home in the 1000 block of South Mulberry Avenue shortly after 8 p.m.. Following a short standoff, Alley exited the home and surrendered. He was arrested and booked into the Chaves County Detention Center. Police found no one else in the home.

Prior to his arrest, RPD placed Alley on its Roswell’s Most Wanted list. Alley’s arrest on Friday made him the second fugitive on the local most-wanted list to be arrested within a period of three days this week. Victor Richardson Jr., 22, who is charged in connection with a separate non-fatal shooting of another man earlier this month, was arrested Wednesday.
