Richmond County Sheriff’s investigators are looking for witnesses to help solve a fatal New Year’s Day shooting.

Lt. Calvin Chew said Thursday that detectives think someone may have seen the shooting or have learned potentially valuable information about 21-year-old Edward Yancey’s killing at Club Fiesco, 2925 Peach Orchard Road. Yancey was hit by a stray bullet about 2:30 a.m. as the club was closing and patrons were heading to a parking area.

Anyone with information can call the sheriff’s office at (706) 821-1080, or at (706) 821-1020 during regular business hours. Callers can remain anonymous.

What are they drinking, then driving off blind from?

They must serving some weird drinks that cause Mass Blindness?
Maybe pulling a alcohol license might help.

Or maybe they aren't adult enough to understand what responsibility is yet?
