ALBANY, GA (WALB) – An investigation into Albany's most recent murder led to charges in a seven month old murder case Friday.
As Albany Police questioned gang members about the shooting at the Brick House Studio, they uncovered evidence that one of the men being questioned was involved in a gang initiation beating death last summer. Thirty-six-year old George Ferguson the third was shot in the arm on Sunday. He's now charged with murder in the death of Reginald Richardson in June of last year. Richardson died in June after a severe beating on Dunes Drive. Police said Richardson's beating was part of his initiation into the Black Gangsta Disciples. Ferguson is a member of that gang and after he was questioned about the fight Saturday night at Brick House, police charged him with Richardson's death. He's the eighth person charged in Richardson's murder.
"And as a result of questioning him as a victim in the Stanford homicide, we also went ahead and questioned him about his involvement in the Richardson homicide, and after questioning him detectives realized they had enough evidence to go ahead and charge him with murder and aggravated assault," said Phyllis Banks-Whitley, Albany Police Media Manager.
Still no one's been charged with the murder of 20-year old LaSheldon Stanford, who was shot outside Brick House Productions. Several gang members involved in the fight that led to his shooting have been charged with gang participation.
