GAINESVILLE - Additional charges have been filed against the Gainesville man arrested for the shooting of two women at the Atlanta Street Apartments last Friday.

Antwan Xavier Earls, 24, was initially arrested on two counts of aggravated assault.

Gainesville Police Corporal Kevin Holbrook says that investigators have now upgraded charges against Earls to include: violation of a conditional bond, two counts of possession of a gun by a convicted felon, two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, one count of aggravated assault and one count of burglary in the second degree.

Earlier, Gainesville Police said Earls acted alone and knew the victims.

Earls remains in the Hall County Jail.
