The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - By Kevin Myrick [email protected]­stan­dard­jour­nal.com

The Rock­mart Po­lice Depart­ment re­leased the name of the wo­man who was shot while driv­ing through an in­ter­sec­tion in Rock­mart on May 16 as they con­tinue a search for a sus­pect.

Ac­cord­ing to Rock­mart Po­lice Chief Randy Turner, Stacey Hol­brook of Rock­mart is re­cov­er­ing from the lone gun­shot that hit her while she was driv­ing down Col­lege Street on Thurs­day af­ter­noon. He did not im­me­di­ately know her con­di­tion on Fri­day af­ter­noon, but said that her fam­ily was with her.

Hol­brook came to a stop in the 500 block of Col­lege Street af­ter she was hit in­side her Toy­ota SUV. The bullet en­tered her thigh, and she was sta­bi­lized by Red­mond EMS of­fi­cials be­fore she was taken to a lo­cal area hospi­tal for fur­ther treat­ment.

Turner said Hol­brook was not the in­tended vic­tim of the shoot­ing. Po­lice had yet to iden­tify who was the tar­get at the time as well as the sus­pect, who fled the scene and was later chased by of­fi­cers to the mid­dle of the county.

Both Rock­mart po­lice, deputies with the Polk County Sher­iff’s Of­fice and the Cedar­town po­lice searched the area near the Polk County Air­port off Ga. 278. Po­lice be­lieve that the shoot­ing sus­pect left their ve­hi­cle and fled on foot.

Po­lice were con­tin­u­ing their search for the sus­pect through the week­end and at press time had yet to re­port any ar­rests. They did re­cover the ve­hi­cle and went over it for ev­i­dence af­ter it was left on Air­port Road.
