Blakely, Ga -- An entire block of North Church Street in Blakely is surrounded by crime scene tape. On the pavement, spray paint marks the ground where a deadly shooting unfolded just after 1 a.m. Sunday morning.

New Orleans Saints defensive end and former UGA standout Charles Grant was stabbed in the neck with an unknown object.

"He took out a pistol and started shooting every kinda way. And I just hit the ground," said Dominique Sol. He was outside of Club 92 where witnesses say someone opened gunfire, one of the shots striking and killing his 23-year-old pregnant cousin Korynda Reed.

"We were like call the ambulance, call the ambulance. Nobody was doing none of that. So everybody around was crying trying to bring her back and stuff. Folks was crying and passing out," Sol said.

Early County Sheriff's investigators say several hundred people were in the street outside of Porky's Social Club where the fight started and Club 92, both along North Church Street.

Grant was treated for the wound and released from the Early Memorial Hospital. He was outside of the Early County Sheriff's Office Sunday with family members but had no comment.

Grant, a Miller County native who was a first round NFL draft pick out of UGA in 2002, was questioned, along with several others, but only as witnesses in the case.

So far sheriff's investigators say that no one has been charged or held in connection with the crime.

Investigators tell us that Korynda Reed's body will be transported to the crime lab in Dekalb County on Monday for an autopsy.
