Triple shooting leaves one dead

June 12, 2006

Moultrie - Three people were shot at a Moultrie Apartment complex Friday night.  One died, and police don't know who the shooter or shooters were.

It happened at the Shy Manor Apartments on Northside Drive around 10:30. Police say three people were shot. 20-year old Eddie Martin was shot while sitting in his car in the parking lot. He was struck in the thigh and the bullet hit an artery, causing him to bleed to death.

Bullets riddled the apartments near by, and two other people were hit by bullets, 28-year old Terrell Hawkins and a 16-year old boy. Investigators don't know if the victims knew each other, or if they knew the shooter.

People who live in the complex want someone with information to come forward so no one else is hurt. Nicole Poole says, "It could be one of our relatives and I know if it happened to one of my children, I would want somebody to come forth and don't be scared to come forth."

Both Hawkins and the 16-year old are doing fine. There was damage to several apartments in the complex, but the actual amount of damage isn't known.
