Moultrie, GA (WALB) – Willie Bender Junior, 29, was shot to death Sunday morning on Fourth Street Southwest.
Police questioned a man arrested in Albany, but have not charged him in the crime.
The GBI has been called in to help with the investigation. Both agencies questioned more people Monday, but say as of now they're releasing few details about what they believe may have lead up this shooting.
Several powerful gun shots feet from his bedroom window jolted Rev. R. O. Calhoun as he prepared his Sunday morning sermon in the parsonage.
"I was already up preparing for Sunday, I went to the window saw nothing," Calhoun said.
The shots disturbing, but not unusual for the short time he's live in the neighborhood.
"It's not unusual here, especially with the low economy," Calhoun said.
Moultrie Police say it was Willie Bender Junior's girlfriend who called 911, but police and the GBI are releasing few details about why Bender may have been targeted.
"We're still working out every lead that we can and we're going though everything we can get through before we can make any decisions on what happened," said Moultrie Police Commander Alfonzo Cook.
They have cleared a man arrested in Albany on warrant for an unrelated robbery. "He was questioned and he was released from having any involvement with this incident at this time," said Cook.
Now police are asking for the community's help, encouraging anyone with information about the murder to come forward.
The District Attorney met with agents investigating this case today to make sure the investigation is progressing in the right direction and that everyone is on the same page.
Police say while they've questioned several people, no one is in custody. An autopsy was scheduled today in Macon, although the GBI had not yet received the results.
