Deeper dive into Garrian King shows several arrests

King is charged with possession of a firearm as a felon in connection with the deadly shooting along McCallie Avenue this past Saturday

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – With the arrest, it leads to more questions about who Garrian King is.

King has had some run-ins with law enforcement in the past.

The latest one puts him on the scene of the deadly shooting last Saturday.

The 28-year-old King only has a federal charge in connection with the shooting outside Mary’s Bar last Saturday: possession of a firearm as a felon.

According to the affidavit, King is a member of the Rollin 60’s Crips gang, and one of the other people at the scene of the shooting is also a member.

If his name sounds familiar, you may remember an incident the day after Christmas in 2016 at Hamilton Place Mall.

Four people walked into the Victoria’s Secret store at the mall, started to get merchandise, then set off firecrackers to cause a distraction to get away with about a thousand dollars worth of goods.

The firecrackers caused close to two thousand dollars worth of damage.

Several people were injured in the panic.

The judge sentenced King to three years in federal prison for the robbery, but additional time was suspended for the possession of a deadly weapon and marijuana for resale for an incident that happened six months earlier.

In November of 2017, King was convicted of being a felon in possession of ammunition and originally sentenced to three years in prison, and was on supervised release for another three years.

And, if you want to go even further back for King, he was a defensive lineman for Baylor High School back in 2011. There are some highlights, as number 74 for Baylor in white and red.

Again, King is not under arrest for shooting anyone outside Mary’s Bar and Grill.

The only charge for “Big G,” as he is called, is a federal charge from the ATF: possession of a firearm as a felon.
