CHATHAM COUNTY, GA -

Chatham County Sheriff's and Savannah-Chatham Metro Police need your hep catching this week's Fugitive Files suspects, both considered armed and dangerous.

Laron Thompson is on the run from the law.

The 27 year old is wanted for aggravated assault, making terroristic threats and violating his probation.

Chatham County Sheriff's say those are just the charges they know about.

"Usually these guys we are looking for they are also being sought after by other agencies," explains Corporal Andrew Staley of the Chatham County Sheriff's Department. "He may have a probation violation with us, but he may be sought after by Metro Police for murder. You just never know."

Laron Thompson is 6' 185 pounds and was last seen in the 1100 block of Delesseps avenue or the 300 block of Argyle road.

Investigators say your tip could be the key to catching this suspect.

"Before we hear about things, sometimes the street hears about it first," said Cpl Staley. "So it's very important the public gets involved in helping get these guys off the streets."

Our second suspect, Toney Coppock is just 22 years old, but no stranger to the law.

But on July 16 police say he took his crime to the next level.

That's when he got into a fight and opened fire on a friend.

"He wound up shooting him twice and were it not for a mishap during the incident, he probably would have killed him," explains Detective Kevin Grogan of the Savannah-Chatham Metro Police.

The victim, 30 year old Gerald Williams is now on the mend, Coppock still on the loose.

Toney Coppock is 5' 6" 120 to 130 pounds and was last seen in East Savannah, and is possibly in the Waters avenue corridor.

If you know where Coppock is, call Crimestoppers right now at (912) 234-2020.
 
And If Toney Coppock is watching, Detectives have a message for you.

"Might as well get it over with," said Detective Grogan. "You will be all over the news. You might as well come in."
