Two gunmen sought in Sumter shooting

September 29, 2003

Americus-- Investigators are now searching for two suspects in last week's shooting at a Sumter County home.

Early Monday morning, two cousins, 18-year-old Jermaine Tullis and 24-year-old Antarus Jones, were shot inside the home they share with their grandfather. The incident is believed to be gang related, and now investigators confirm there were two shooters, not one.

Deputies are looking for at least one suspect, but will not release the name. Investigators think the shooting could be gang related and they've heard about threats of retaliation.

Tullis remains hospitalized in Columbus, with a bullet wound to his face.
