GBI investigating shooting death in Crawford County

The Thursday death of a male in Crawford County is being investigated by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office.

At 10:07 a.m. Thursday, Crawford County sheriff’s deputies responded to a call on Springhill Church Road. Upon the deputies’ arrival, they found the male that had been shot.

“We’re still trying to determine what we’ve got,” Sheriff Lewis Walker said about 3 p.m. “We don’t know if it’s accidental or what right now.”

The victim was taken to a local hospital by Mid-Georgia Ambulance, where he later was pronounced dead.

The identity of the deceased will be released once the next of kin are notified, Walker said.
