Warrants issued for Duluth shooting suspects

DULUTH -- Police have issued arrest warrants for a pair of suspects accused of shooting a man for his wallet at a Duluth home.

Duluth police responded to the home on the 3300 block of Washington Street -- about a mile from City Hall -- just before 7 p.m. on Jan. 18. The victim, a 40-year-old male from Lawrenceville, told authorities he had been attacked by "four black males."

"(The victim) had a gunshot wound to his left thigh and right calf and also had several lacerations on his head from blunt force trauma," according to an incident report.

The next day, police issued arrest warrants for Quinton Antonia Rogers and Timothy Dwayne Curtis, both 33 of Duluth, charging them with aggravated assault and armed robbery. Warrants said Rogers and Curtis hit the victim on the head before shooting him, then took "the victim's wallet from him while beating him."

Gwinnett County Jail records showed neither man had been arrested as of Tuesday afternoon. Both Rogers and Curtis have been arrested multiple times in Gwinnett, on charges ranging from drug possession to armed robbery.

Information regarding the other two men the victim alleged attacked him was not immediately available Tuesday.
