Georgia Bureau of Investigation asks public's help in locating suspects in Burke shootings



Three of the five people injured early Sunday in a shooting at a Burke County party remain hospitalized.

Georgia Bureau of Investi­gation special agent in charge Pat Morgan said Monday that it appears there was more than one shooter.

The Burke County Sher­iff’s Of­fice asked for the GBI’s assistance in investigating the shooting, which happened at a repurposed automobile shop at 4960 Highway 80 West about 1:45 a.m. Sun­day.

A police sergeant said Sunday that 150 to 200 people were at the party.

Three victims – Darius Smith, 21; Rokeisha Graham, 17; and Bromekis Donnie, 18 – were taken to Georgia Re­gents Medical Cen­ter,
the GBI said. Morgan said he did not know their conditions.

Shequan Hines, 19, was treated and released from Burke Medical Center. Brandon Harold, 17, was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center later Sunday by family and has also been released.

Anyone with information can contact the sheriff’s office at (706) 554-2133 or the GBI at (706) 595-2575.
