A man who fled to Maryland while being wanted in connection with the shooting of two people at a residence in Cumming last year has been indicted for the incident.

Ronald Eric Lofland, who was 47 at the time of the May 30, 2016, shooting, faces felony charges of family violence aggravated assault, aggravated assault, tampering with the operation of an electronic monitoring device and two serious felony counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, according to a Feb. 13 bill of indictment.

The report indicates he made an assault with a handgun on his wife and a man who does not share their last name.

Lofland was indicted on June 13, 2016 for separate domestic charges from January 2016 also involving his wife, for which he faces two counts of family violence aggravated assault and third-degree cruelty to children, according to another indictment report.

The tampering with a monitoring device stems from Lofland reportedly removing the one he was wearing “as a condition of pretrial release.”

Though the indictment does not mention a discharged firearm, in May, Lofland fled after reportedly shooting the adult male and female at a home on Darla Avenue off Tribble Gap Road, according to previous reports.

Both victims survived their injuries.

Lofland’s vehicle was found abandoned on the side of the road the next morning at the Buford Highway (Hwy. 20) interchange on Interstate-285 in Gwinnett County.

He was detained by U.S. Marshals deputies a month later in Maryland.

Forsyth County Superior Court Judge David L. Dickinson is presiding over the case, for which a trial has not been set.
