A Chattanooga man was charged with attempted first-degree murder after police responded to a 911 call and found a woman lying in her kitchen with a gunshot wound on her right cheek.

According to various witnesses, the shooter was 22-year-old Adarius Garth, the victim's former boyfriend. Her children were in the house and told police they saw Garth shoot their mother.

According to police, Garth, who is listed as an affiliated gang member, threatened everyone at the house and said if they told what they saw, he would kill them. The victim and her children were afraid to return.

The incident occurred on March 17. Garth was finally arrested on April 27 on multiple warrants.

He has been charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of domestic aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, and the possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Bond was set at $150,000.

Garth is scheduled to appear before General Sessions Court Judge Gary Starnes on May 20.
