Missing Shooter’s Black Cadillac Escalade Found

Sandy Springs Police are looking for Matthew Terry for the Sunday shooting of his ex-girlfriend. Shawn Crews is in serious condition but improving, police said.


Matthew Terry, 42, remains on the run for the Sunday shooting of Shawn Crews at Chastain Apartments on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs.

On Tuesday morning, police found Terry’s 2005 black Cadillac Escalade at a relative’s residence in metro Atlanta, however he could be traveling in Crews’ Mercedes C-280 with New York license plate no. FLX-3586, said Sandy Springs Police Capt. Steve Rose.

Rose said Terry is a resident of Poughkeepsie, NY and moved from Sandy Springs, a year ago.

Police believe Terry, who is Shawn Crews’ ex-boyfriend and the father of her toddler son, was waiting for Crews when she arrived home Sunday just after 5 p.m. The two argued, Crews ran out of the apartment and was shot several times - once in the face - in the breezeway or stairway, Rose said. 

Her four-year-old son was at the location when the shooting occurred but not injured.

Crews, 38, was taken to Grady Hospital.

“She is continuing to improve but she has serious injuries,” Rose said. “We have not been able to talk to her.”

Warrants on Terry include Aggravated Assault, Burglary, and Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony.

I wonder what attracted the victim to this ugly man?

Bananas and apples are both fruits, we never wonder why we must eat both. Being from a small town in New York, its okay for opposites to attract as well as a persons' natural looks are not always the perspective in a relationship. What we have here is a deterioration in the family structure, exploitation of children and the misuse of a Firearm. A mother lays in the hospital suffering while her children are displaced from home. The bigger picture is how can we avoid exploiting children, automatically making them victims and likely future perpetrators of violence?

1st and Foremost, he's a good dude that made some bad decisions. great father, friend, brother & family man. ..beauty is in the eye of the beholder. ..there's more to him that meets the eye... don't be quick to judge a person from their appearance...I'm just saying.. may God bless them both and he finds his way to his origin and she finds it in herself to forgive him and heal and them both pray for each other. .. a tragic situation and their are more than just the immediate ppl involved that are affected by this... watch what and how you say things. ..ppl make take it very personal. . Thanx
