An argument between friends left one Milledgeville man dead and another in jail, police say.

LaDarrius Cummings, 25, was fatally wounded in the abdomen at Milledgeville Manor just after 6 p.m. Monday, Baldwin County Deputy Coroner Ken Garland said.

Baldwin County sheriff’s deputies are investigating the shooting that happened near building B at the apartment complex at 1498 Edwards St. on the south side of the county.

Late Monday, investigators secured arrest warrants for 18-year-old Monterius Terrell Grable, and a lookout was posted, Baldwin County sheriff’s Capt. Brad King said.

Grable turned himself in at about 11:15 a.m. Tuesday, King said.

“To be honest with you, they’re actually friends,” King said. “It’s my understanding they had a physical altercation there that resulted in gunfire.”

King said he remembers both men from their arrests in a different case.

“It was not uncommon to see them together,” he said.

Grable is charged with murder and aggravated assault.

Investigators are trying to determine what led to the argument.

After the shooting, Cummings was taken to Navicent Health, Baldwin, before being transferred to Medical Center, Navicent Health, in Macon where he died a short time after he arrived, King said.

Cummings’ body was taken early Tuesday morning to the GBI Crime Lab in Macon for an autopsy.
