| February 17, 2016


Two men have been shot in separate early morning incidents in Moultrie and agents with the GBI are investigating. One of the victims has died and the other has been airlifted to a Macon hospital. As police were on the scene of the initial 7th Street incident the second report of a 4th Street shooting came in. The GBI has not determined if the shootings were related.

It has been a year and a half since the killing of Edward Ferguson in Adel. The August 2014 shooting also left Anthony Hill with multiple serious injuries. The murder and assault took place in the public housing site on Holiday Street. Now, a $4,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.
