On Saturday, Bland allegedly opened fire on a car in Flovilla, Ga. with three women inside. Thankfully, no one was hurt.

Sheriff Long says that Bland was also wanted for five other drive-by shootings in Jackson and Flovilla.

"I want to send a very strong message to these cowardly gangs, it's members and associates; identifying and arresting everyone in your gang is my number one priority. I promise you that my Deputies will not stop until we completely dismantle your gang and everyone that is assisting in furthering your criminal enterprise," said Sheriff Long.
