Moultrie- A remnant of police tape still remains around the tree at a 5th Street SW home, early Sunday morning the neighborhood was rocked by the city's first homicide of the year.
"We're starting off early on a bad note," says Sgt. Roger Lindsay.
Lindsay says an officer was patrolling the area when he heard someone call out for help.
"The officer stopped, got out of his patrol car and noticed a black male subject was in some pain, and he noticed the individual had been shot," says Lindsay.
That man was identified as 25 year old Eric Alderman of Valdosta. Lindsay says Alderman's blue Ford Taurus was found parked at the curve on 3rd Avenue, just yards from the house were he walked to get help.
"It appears that he raised his right hand up. I don't know if you could say that would be a defensive. He was struck in the hand the projectile came out of the back of his hand and hit him in the chest area. He expired later a Colquitt Regional Medical Center," explains Lindsay.
There is still no motive for the shooting, but police did recover evidence from Alderman's car.
"We recovered a couple of firearms at the scene. It apparently was not going to be either one of them used in the shooting. We recovered a nine millimeter spent cartridge inside the vehicle, and at this time this is still an ongoing investigation," says Lindsay.
An investigation Sgt. Lindsay says the entire force will be working together to complete.
Sgt. Lindsay says GBI agents have also been called in to help in the investigation. So far no witnesses to the shooting have come forward.
