MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) – Police officers are trying to figure what sparked the Friday night shooting that took the life of 26-year-old Alvin Hunt.

Investigators are working, but say the need more to find out who shot 26-year-old Alvin Hunt at the Shy Manor Terrace Apartments on Friday night.

"Multiple gun shots fired and the victim was taken to the hospital," Hunt died from his wounds at Colquitt Regional Medical center "The leads are very unclear."

They aren't sure if the victim was the target. His family is devastated over the news.

"I know his mother and his brothers," said cook.

Moultrie PD is asking for witnesses to come forward so they can better piece together exactly what happened.

Several people may have been in the area and saw what happened, there could also be more than one suspect.

"We were told several subjects did come into the area," said Cook.

Hunt was a father.

"From what I understand he did have a very young son, approximately 1-year-old," said Cook.

Investigators aren't ready to release how many time he was shot or where, right now there is no motive for why Hunt was killed.
