WATERFORD (WWJ) - The second of three suspects wanted in the December shooting at a roller-skating rink in Waterford Township has been captured by a FBI task force in Georgia.

Waterford Police say members of the FBI Atlanta Field Office located 21-year-old Tre-Andis Jamison of Pontiac in Gwinnett County, Georgia. He is currently being held in Gerogia on an Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution warrant and a 14 count Attempted Homicide warrant pending his return to Michigan.

His arrest stems from a Dec. 23 shooting at the “Rolladium” Skating Center. A private holiday party billed as an 18 and up “Roll Up” was coming to a close around 1:45 a.m. when Jamison and two other men entered the building and fired handguns from the snack bar area out onto the skating floor area.

Nearly 300 people were inside the rink, which is located on Highland Rd. near Pontiac Lake Rd. in Waterford Township, about 25 miles northwest of Detroit.

In all, five party-goers were stuck: a 20-year-old White Lake woman, a 20-year old Pontiac man and woman, a 21-year-old Pontiac man and a 23-year-old Pontiac woman. All five victims recovered from their injuries.

The other two gunmen were identified as 17-year-old Cheyenne Ingram, who was arrested in January, and 18-year-old Robert Lee German, who remains at large. Police say they learned of Jamison’s identity only after Ingram’s arrest. Police were able to identify the other suspects from security camera footage of the incident.

Investigators say the shooting stemmed from two rival gangs out of Pontiac, one known as the “Goon Squad,” and the other as “1st Enfantry.” One of the victims shot was an intended target and rival to the shooters, and was previously shot by rivals in a similar incident at a nightclub in Pontiac back in December 2010.

Police say people are reluctant to cooperate with the investigation and come forward with information because of the gang affiliations and history of violence.
