Witnesses told investigators two men were speeding up and down County Road 1002 in the early morning hours of Aug. 23. When a resident said something to them, an argument took place and the men then left, according to the sheriff’s office.

The woman was taken to a hospital in serious condition. The sheriff’s office did not disclose her condition Thursday.

Investigators said they searched the area and found the truck at a home nearby. Blevins was placed under arrest, and authorities said they found what they believe was the gun used in the crime.

Blevins was booked into the DeKalb County Jail on $150,000 bond.
