A man who was added to Roswell’s Most Wanted list Monday for shooting at another man during an argument about money, was apprehended by police Tuesday.


Jerry Marquez Jr., 40, was found at about noon at a residence on the the 300 block of Bonney Street, Todd Wildermuth, Roswell Police Department’s public information officer, said in an email.

The email states Marquez at first refused to exit the residence, but a short time later emerged on his own.

Marquez was placed on Roswell’s Most Wanted list Monday for allegedly firing shots at another man Aug. 28 near West Second Street and Washington Avenue during a fight the two men had about money. In the midst of the dispute, Marquez is alleged to have pulled out a gun and fired it as the other man fled the scene.

The victim, who was not hit by the shot, chose not to bring charges against Marquez for the incident, however, the incident later resulted in charges of a felon in possession of a firearm against Marquez.
