Following the shooting at Cumberland Mall in Cobb Co., involving the two teens this past weekend, has been shocking for most locals in the Marietta area.
According to police records and standby witnesses, the shooting incident stems from an altercation between two groups of young men. Suspects, Zaire Dhanoolal (18), and Joweer Ponce (19) were arrested for the incident that left innocent bystanders running for their lives.
After reviewing the footage, investigators found Dhanoolal as the only shooter during the attack, which left one person injured.
Although Ponce was carrying a gun without a gun license, the footage shows Ponce’s firearm dropping on the ground during the scuffle between Dhaoolal, before Dhaoolal opened fire. Ponce has been released from jail with a 10,000 dollar bond, and his charges have dropped down to misdemeanors after police reviewed evidence of Poner not being a shooter during the attack.
