Four people shot and killed at home, two others injured

April 1, 2003

Coffee County - Five people have been shot and killed, within a month, in the same South Georgia neighborhood. Four of those killings happened the same morning.

Investigators believe the shootings could be linked. Now, they're offering a reward for information leading to an arrest.

Six men, shot early Saturday morning, sitting around the table playing cards. Four were killed, two injured. A neighbor, Billie Jo Moran, says, "It's awful, you hear it on the news, but when it's at your front door, it's scary."

Most of the victims were relatives of Moran's husband. She says, "It's hard on him, it's hard on everybody."

The mobile home is on Elm Street in the Oak Park area, one mile north of Douglas. Two gunmen burst in, demanded money and started shooting. Some of the bullets left holes to the outside. Mrs. Moran adds, "They say two black males came in and started shooting. Started taking money out of the guys wallets and pockets."

Relatives say those who died were 18-year-old Nabor Resendiz, 20-year-old Juan Resendiz, Jose Luis Gaytan and 19-year-old Roman Obino.

The survivors are 26-year-old Rohillio Conde who's in fair condition with a gunshot wound to the stomach and 27-year-old Miguel Garcia who was shot in the leg and released from the hospital.

This is the second set of shootings in a month in this neighborhood. Mrs. Moran says, "Four families moved out on Saturday."

A block away 20-year-old Bartolo Salez Claudio was shot and killed at this mobile home on Maple Street. Investigators believe the shootings could be connected. No arrests have been made.

Again, a reward is being offered. If you have any information call the Coffee County Sheriff's Office or the Douglas GBI.
