Jerome V. Fields, 24, of DeKalb, was charged with aggravated discharge of a weapon.

DeKALB – The 24-year-old DeKalb man accused of bringing the gun another man used to shoot at an occupied vehicle last week was in jail Wednesday.

Jerome V. Fields, of the 800 block of Pappas Drive in DeKalb, was charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon. Police said Fields drove 27-year-old DeKalb resident Benjamin Evans on Nov. 13 to James Court Apartments on North First Street and gave him a gun.

Police said Evans has admitted that he fired two shots at a car carrying people he was arguing with, court records show.

Evans is being held at the DeKalb County Jail. His next court date is Thursday.

If convicted of the more serious charge, Fields will face up to 15 years in prison. Bond was set at $100,000.
