Police ID car theft suspect
Brunswick police took out arrest warrants Wednesday on a man they say is responsible for a shooting and carjacking last week in the city.

Police are on the lookout for Rockel Lamane Hardy, 35, of Brunswick. He faces charges of motor vehicle hijacking, aggravated battery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to Brunswick Police Detective Angela Smith.

Hardy allegedly entered the passenger door of a silver Toyota Solara just after midnight on Aug. 29 in the 1000 block of Gordon Street, according to police. Hardy was allegedly wearing a mask and demanded that the driver, a man who police have not identified but said he was in his 30s, get out of the car.

After the victim resisted, police allege Hardy shot him in his abdomen.

When the man exited the car, Hardy drove away, according to police.

First responders immediately took the victim to the emergency room at the Brunswick hospital of Southeast Georgia Health System, where he has remained since the shooting.

Police found the vehicle at 1 a.m. Saturday parked in a tow-away zone at King & Prince Seafood, 1 King and Prince Blvd., in Brunswick.

Police have not disclosed the caliber of the handgun used to shoot the driver.
