Robbery is believed to be the motive in the fatal shooting of a 72-year-old Milledgeville man Friday.
Mandle Charlie Waters was found shot twice in the back inside his car at the intersection of Lewis Court and Kemp Avenue in the south end of the county, said Baldwin County sheriff’s Capt. Brad King.
Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched at 1:40 p.m. in reference to a car stopped at the intersection and a man slumped over the steering wheel, King said. Waters was pronounced dead at the scene, King said.
The weapon used was a semi-automatic pistol, King said.
Detectives think more than one suspect was involved in the shooting, which has been ruled a homicide, King said.“Persons of interest” have been identified, King said. He declined to elaborate.
An autopsy is expected to be conducted Tuesday at the GBI’s crime lab in Macon, said Baldwin County Coroner John Gonzalez.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the detective division of the sheriff’s office at (478) 445-4893.
