Somebody knows something, but hardly anyone is saying anything.
That is the dilemma facing Milledgeville police and Baldwin County sheriff’s deputies in the wake of multiple shootings this summer.
The Milledgeville Police Department’s Facebook page appeals for information.
“We desperately need your help in bringing this to an end,” read a statement that was posted after another set of shootings over the weekend.
Friday night, police investigated multiple shots fired in the Boddie Projects where bullets hit a few houses and cars.
Sunday night on Mitchell Street, multiple shots hit cars and a house.
While officers were processing that crime scene, they heard gunfire from the West End Projects.
They did not find any evidence of a shooting, and no one reported hearing shots fired.
When the shootings began in mid-July, Baldwin County authorities said the incidents in historic battleground neighborhoods likely stemmed from turf battles involving rival gangs.
Investigators suspect the summer of violence might have ignited with the June 14 killing of 21-year-old Diquan Key, who was shot outside the Soul Masters Club on Ga. 22.
The GBI has gathered dozens of shell casings, as many as two dozen from one location.
Macon Regional Crimestoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for information.
Monday night, Milledgeville Police Chief Dray Swicord upped the incentive by offering to double the Crimestoppers reward if the tip leads to an arrest and conviction.
