A man accused in the Nov. 3 shooting at the Coastal Empire Fair was arrested Monday by the Southeastern Regional Fugitive Task Force of the U.S. Marshal's office and Savannah-Chatham Metro Police.

Six suspects were wanted in connection with the shooting that injured eight people.

Terrance Lasalle Thacker Jr., was arrested Monday by US Marshals, members of the Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Tactical Reaction and Prevention Team and the Neighborhood Task Force at a motel on Ogeechee Road.

He has been charged with making false statements to police to impede the investigation and was wanted on a felony probation violation.

SCMPD's Criminal Investigation Detectives are asking for the public's help in finding Lajuan Jerome Sloman, 21, of a Cordell Street address.

Sloman is charged with aggravated assault. Police said he was one of two shooters in the case.

He has been reportedly posting on his Facebook page about running from police.

"It will be especially rewarding when we get him because he has been boasting about getting away from us," Police Chief Willie Lovett said.

Anyone with information on the case or the location of the suspects is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 912.234.2020 or text CRIMES (274637). In the body type, include "CStop2020" plus the tip. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
