Some Moss Road residents were evacuated from their homes early today after a man claiming to be Jesus fired gunshots at random, law officers said. After it was over, Chad Hancock (age and address unavailable) was arrested and charged with felony aggravated assault.

His girlfriend, Alisa Davidson, 20, was charged with disorderly conduct, according to warrants on file in the case.

It began just before 2 a.m. Thursday when someone at the Shannon Maynard residence on Moss Road called the Putnam Sheriff's Department and reported that a man there had a gun and was claiming to be Jesus Christ.

Deputy Cpl. David Gibbons and Deputies Ron Harris and Chuck Ledbetter rushed to the scene.

They were met outside the home by Shannon Maynard, who told them he had just run from his own home in fear of his life "after Chad Hancock had aimed a .22 caliber handgun at him," says a report by Deputy Harris.

Allegedly, Hancock had pointed the gun at Maynard, saying "Stand before me, look me in the eyes -- you need to run, you're the demon."
