The Glynn County grand jury issued a set of indictments Wednesday, including one against Paul O’Neal Scott, accusing him of attempted murder.
According to the indictment and police statements from the incident on Aug. 12, officers arrived at the Palms Motel along U.S. Highway 17 around 3 a.m. to a call of a shooting. There they found a 30-year-old woman, Angel Sullivan, on the ground and suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest.
She was taken by helicopter for treatment at UF Health Jacksonville.
Police later found Scott in a room at the Seabreeze Motel, which is also located on U.S. Highway 17. They recovered a .380-caliber Taurus handgun, which is believed to be the weapon used in the shooting and stolen from a different man, along with an amount of MDMA, and less than an ounce of marijuana.
At the time, Scott was on probation following a felony first-offender conviction in Chatham County in 2014 for first-degree burglary. He faces charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a first-offender probationer, possession of a Schedule I controlled substance, possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, possession of drug-related objects and theft by receiving stolen property.
In a separate matter, the grand jury indicted Tonya Jean Carrington for terroristic threats and aggravated assault in violation of the state Family Violence Act. According to the indictment, on March 24 she threatened to kill one man and pointed a Glock 43 9mm handgun at a different man who lived at her residence.
