(Douglas-AP) -- A 23-year-old Homerville man sought in the 2001 shooting deaths of three Coffee County men has surrendered to authorities.

John Heinen of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Travis Morris surrendered Monday at the Coffee County Jail in Douglas. Morris was charged with murder in the March 13th, 2001, deaths of Rodney Gaskin, Shannon Smith and George Williams the third.

Another Homerville man -- 26-year-old Reno Hodges -- was arrested and charged with murder for the same killings.

Gaskin -- who was 25 -- was found shot to death inside his home in Douglas by a relative. Police said the bodies of 24-year-old Williams and 22-year-old Smith were found a short time later inside a car parked at a park in Douglas.
