At about 1:30AM this morning two separate reports came in claiming gunshots had damaged residences located on Mayo and Ashby Streets. These were also drive-by in nature.
Major of Investigations, Richard McCorkle reports 2 stolen guns as well as gun casings have been recovered and charges are pending on those offenses. One gun was stolen from Americus and the other from Phoenix, Arizona.
The investigation is ongoing and the name of the gunshot victim has not been released.
