Clayton County, Georgia (CBS46)-Police are investigating a “hate crime” in Jonesboro.
At 2:30 am on July 30, a Clayton County police officer was dispatched to 6000 blocks on Tara Boulevard in connection with gunshots and property damage.
When the officers arrived, they heard them shoot down another mountain. Zion Road.
That was when some Clayton County police officers went to investigate the area where the shots were fired.
While on the scene, officers came into contact with the 2016 Ford Fusion, which was in and out of the lane. Tag # CLW3573.
When police stopped traffic because they couldn’t keep their lanes, they found an open container in front of the vehicle with a bag of ammunition containing a casing of shells.
According to police, detained Larry Foxworth, 47, voluntarily spoke several times while in a police car.
“I can name you and make it disappear,” Foxworth said. “This is a hate crime, and this is a targeted hit.”
Foxworth admitted shooting at the scene of the incident because he didn’t like the “towel head” while being interviewed by the detective. He went on to say he didn’t like African Americans (using N-word).
There are no other suspects at this time. This is an ongoing investigation.
