Arlington -- In the early hours of Tuesday morning, Early County deputies were called out to a mobile home on Georgia highway 216, just south of Arlington near the Baker County line. 

"Upon arrival they found a young black male Jeremy Lofton, pronounced dead at scene," said Investigator Will Caudill of the Early County Sheriff's Office.

The 18-year-old Lofton was dead on the ground behind the abandoned mobile home. 

Another man was shot, too, but managed to get to a nearby house where he was taken to the hospital. He's still alive and investigators won't release his name because they are afraid the killers will come after him again.

Investigators spent hours pouring over the crime scene this morning, but still don't know why this happened, or who is responsible.  "I'm not going to comment on the motive, but I'll say that we are following up on some leads," said Caudill.

Right now, neighbors in the rural community are shocked at what's happened, and  hope police make an arrest soon.
