An investigation into a report of multiple shot being fired in the White Hall area New Years’ Eve resulted in the arrest of a man currently on probation from another county.

Quentine Lowe was taken into custody after a tip from his parole officer identified him as a suspect in the incident.

Reading from an affidavit by White Hall Police Sgt. Clayton Cantrell, Deputy Prosecutor Joe West said on Dec. 31, there was a report of multiple gunshots in the Winchester area in White Hall.

West said a GPS ping showed that Lowe was at the house Dec. 31, and on into Jan. 1.

He added that Lowe’s conviction was from Drew County.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $20,000 bond for Lowe after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge him with being a felon in possession of a firearm. He was told to come back to court Feb. 29.
