Maybe for that charge....But....
-Reckless Endangerment
-Unlawful discharge of a firearm
-Malicious Mischief/Vandalism
And, if you said that you were shooting at the vehicle, then I can possibly see attempted manslaughter OR attempted murder.

How so?

Were you, or someone else in imminent danger of death or serious bodily harm?
Did the subject make or attempt a "violent and tumultuous" entry into your home?
Did the subject draw or handle a firearm, club or cutting instrument in such a way that would make a reasonable person believe that attack was about to happen?

I won't pretend to know the law in Georgia, but I can tell you this--if you did this in WA State, and I were the responding officer, I'd take your complaint, and then place you under arrest for all of the above charges noted.

If the car is driving away, LET IT GO.

Besides, even if you AREN'T charged--and you hit the guy--trust me, you would probably NOT want to drive that car again.
