Victim identified after being shot dead while riding in a car near Milledgeville

A man with a Gordon address was shot and killed late Monday while riding in a car in south Baldwin County.

Jyleel Solomon, 23, was fatally wounded in the head at about 11 p.m. on Central Avenue near Hardwick, Baldwin County Deputy Coroner Ken Garland said.

Solomon was a passenger in a car that “took on gunfire from another vehicle,” Garland said.

He was pronounced dead at 11:15 p.m. at Oconee Regional Medical Center, Navicent Health.

Baldwin County sheriff’s deputies also are investigating another homicide in a vehicle a couple weeks ago.

Veronique Reaves was fatally shot just after 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 20 as she drove on Ga. 212 near Little Road.

Sheriff Bill Massee initially said authorities believe Reaves was targeted as she reported a vehicle was following her before the shot was fired through the taillight of her Toyota Camry.

Another person was shot overnight in Baldwin County and investigators are trying to determine if there is any connection.

Anyone with any information that could be helpful to investigators is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 478-445-4891 or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 877-68-CRIME.
