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.

Darius, Rokeisha, Bromekis, Shequan.

I wish I understood the thought process leading up to this "creativity".

Could be pops. I watch these

Could be pops. I watch these shows about prisons, and the whole social system is centered around perceived respect. It reminds me of the shows I watch about animals establishing their pecking orders and showing deference to the strongest.

If you are going to a party,

If you are going to a party, and feel that you need to take a gun for "protection", you need to find something else to do.

need to be working

Part of this culture is caused by not working. If these people would get a job and be productive, they would not have time for partying and running the streets at all hours of the night. Most party all night and sleep all day. I would think that most of their money for all this partying comes from their babysmama. Also known as WELFARE!

They must be joking asking the "public" for help. That public believes in the motto "snitches get stitches". They're their own worst enemy so why bother to waste the manpower to investigate. When it gets bad enough maybe they'll be glad to step forward and give some info to the po po.
