SAVANNAH — Police have arrested the sixth man who was wanted in connection with a shooting at a fair in Savannah that left eight people injured.

Savannah-Chatham police Wednesday arrested 21-year-old Lajuan Jerome Sloman for his involvement in the shootout at the Coastal Empire Fair on Nov. 3.

Authorities say Sloman was one of two shooters and is charged with eight counts of aggravated assault and one count of lying to police to impede their investigation.

Another man, 23-year-old Terrance Lasalle Thacker Jr. was arrested Monday for lying to police about the incident.

Four others — including the man who returned fire at Sloman — have already been taken into custody.
