Hill fled the residence prior to the arrival of officers at around 4:00 AM, but his vehicle was located behind the residence.

According to a CCSO press release issued Monday afternoon, the vehicle had been previously reported stolen out of Carroll County.

Deputies located Hill in a wooded area near the home.

During a foot pursuit, Hill allegedly fired at least one shot at officers, but no one was struck or injured.

A perimeter was set up, but as of 3:45 PM Monday, Hill has not been located and the search is ongoing.

Boy Scout Road is located between Powers Crossroads and Dr. Bruce Jackson Road in Coweta County.

According to a report issued last week by Heard County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Mike Soprano, Hill is also wanted on charges of Aggravated Assault after allegedly shooting another man during an argument in Heard County on Sunday, November 29.

The male victim was transported to a hospital with non life threatening injuries.

Roger Thomas Hill stands 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighs around 180 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes and a barbed wire tattoo on his right arm.

Hill is considered armed and dangerous. Investigators advises that anyone who comes in contact with him not approach and immediately call 911.
