Americus -- Drops of blood now remain where a man was shot and killed at 224 South Jackson Street. "I just was at home and heard shots," said Kelsey Dice. 

"I heard four gun shots and looked over and saw the body on the porch and I ran in the house," said a woman who witnessed the murder. She did not want to be identified.

That body belonged to 38-year-old Victor Maye of Miami, Florida. "I was just hollering call police, someone call 9-1-1 , call 9-1-1."

Americus Police officers got the call at 6:39 PM Saturday evening and immediately went to the scene.

"We ran outside to see what was going on, and we seen a lot of cars start pulling up, police cars," said Dice.

Neighbors say this commotion is unusual for this street. "All of us get along in this neighborhood. It's a quiet neighborhood."

After hours of investigation, officers arrested two people.

36-year-old Tonya Hogan was charged with party to a crime of murder.

33-year-old Willie Peterson was charged with possession of a fire arm during commission of a felony and murder.

Police say the crime was started by domestic dispute. "I seen the white car pull up and they were throwing words to each other."

A pile of water lies where blood was washed away. "I didn't sleep last night. I just keep a close eye on my kids."

But the fear of this crime still stains the hearts of those who live on this street.

Police do not expect to make any more arrests in connection to this deadly shooting.
