    Bad: 2 men killed in Carrollton, GA

    2 men killed in early-morning shootings

    Two men were shot to death and another was wounded inside a home on Molette Street in Carrollton early Wednesday morning.

    Officers discovered the bodies of David F. Nixon, 53, of 111 Molette St., and Michael Deon Cruver, 26, of Carrollton, inside the home after neighbors heard shots fired and called 911 around 1:50 a.m., said Carrollton police Capt. Jamison Sailors.

    David Nixon’s son, Reginald, 27, who was also shot, was taken to Tanner Medical Center in Carrollton, where he underwent surgery. His wounds were not life-threatening.
    Sailors said Reginald Nixon, who was in extreme pain and unable to communicate well with police at the time, was able to flag down officers as they approached the Molette Street home. Police then discovered the body of his father in his bedroom and Cruver in the living room.

    Sailors said investigators did not have any suspects or a motive for the shooting and were unsure if the gunfire followed a home invasion or stemmed from an argument at the home. Police said at least one witness said she saw two males leave the house shortly after hearing the gunfire in a small white car -- possibly a Toyota or Nissan -- travelling eastbound on Molette Street.

    Neighbor Rodderick Thomas said he was inside his mother’s room when the shots were fired and called Reginald Nixon, known as “Nick Jr.”, to see if he was hurt.


    “When I asked Nick Jr. if he was OK, he picked up and said no and hung up,” Thomas said. “I called back and he didn’t answer that time. We heard another dude saying, ‘help me, help me.’ I went over and seen his daddy, ‘Bubba,’ dead in the bed.”

    Thomas said he pulled Reginald out from the living room and bought him to an ambulance.

    “Nick Jr. was my best friend,” Thomas said. “He was low-key and had no problems with nobody. We’ve been friends our whole lives.”
    Maurice Henderson, who also lives on Molette Street, said he was asleep when the shooting occurred but had a friend wake him up to ask him about the gunshots.


    “This is the first time something like this has ever happened here,” Henderson said. “I am going to make sure to be careful and keep an eye on my family when they walk down the street.”

    Police were canvassing the neighborhood Wednesday afternoon for information.
    “We’re hoping somebody knows something and will come forward,” he said.

    Anyone with any information about the incident can contact Carrollton police Cpl. Rita Worthy at 770-834-4451 or Crime Stoppers at 770-838-STOP. All callers can remain anonymous, and a cash reward is offered for information leading to an arrest.
    I believe the suspects have been arrested as of this afternoon. But they weren't in GA.

    Sheriff's Office: 3 wanted in connection with double murder in Georgia captured on St. Helena
    Published Thu, Dec 25, 2008 12:00 AM
    From staff reports

    Three men wanted in connection with a triple shooting in Carrollton, Ga., were arrested Thursday on St. Helena Island.
    Georgia authorities have been searching for Robert Robinson, 23, Lance Thomas Jr., 20, and Jarrell Washington, 20, after identifying the three men as suspects in a shooting that left two men dead and another wounded at a home in Carrollton, according to a news release from the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.

    Carrollton police learned Robinson had ties to the St. Helena area and asked the Beaufort Sheriff's Office to be on the lookout for the suspects, possibly traveling in a white sedan in the area of Folly Road.

    Sheriff's deputies were searching the area when a deputy spotted a white sedan occupied by the three suspects leaving the Folly Road area just after noon. Deputies pulled over the vehicle, and Thomas and Washington were arrested. However, the driver, Robinson, fled, the release said.

    Deputies brought in a K-9 tracking team, while Georgia authorities tracked Robinson's movement through his cell phone usage. He later was spotted at a nearby gas station, where he surrendered without further incident after seeing a deputy approach.

    All three suspects were transported to the Beaufort County Detention Center, where they will remain pending extradition to Georgia, the release said.
    Found!

    From staff reports

    A fourth man wanted in connection with a Christmas Eve triple shooting in Carrollton, Ga., was arrested Friday morning by the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.
    Tony Ray Smith, 22, was arrested at the Greyhound Bus Linesstation on Trask Parkway around 11:30 a.m., said Carrollton Police Capt. Chris Dobbs.Carrollton officers had been looking for Smith; Robert Robinson, 23; Lance Thomas Jr., 20; and Jarrell Washington, 20, for their alleged involvement in a shooting that left two men dead and injured a third in a home in Carrollton.

    Robinson, Thomas and Washington were arrested by the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office on St. Helena Island on Thursday. Investigators from the Carrollton Police Department arrived Thursday night in Beaufort to question the three men and search for Smith.

    Dobbs said there are no more suspects in the case, and all four are expected to return to today to Georgia, where they will face murder charges.

    "They all waived extradition back to Georgia," Dobbs said.
    And another...
