Statenville - Funerals in Echols County Friday for the three men killed in a weekend shooting. A fight between neighbors led to the shootings.
It was 11:30 Sunday night when an Echols County Deputy Steve was called to Lisa Circle to answer a loud noise complaint. That's when two women started to fight.
A husband of one of the women got a gun and started shooting. Billy Corbett shot and killed 36 year-old Chad Wiggins and 34 year-old David Coody Junior.
The deputy then killed Corbett. "It was devastating. It was just a shock. And we know the families. Raised up with some of their kids. I just totally hate that it happened," says Jean Miley who lives near-by.
And the families of those who died are still mourning. "It was just tragic. Tragic on both sides and there's nothing good to come out of it," says Charles Corbett, Billy's Cousin.
Investigators say the neighbors started feuding after Corbett allowed a registered sex offender to move into a mobile home on his property.
The GBI says the investigation is ongoing. "We are waiting on some reports in reference to the autopsies and some toxicology information," says GBI agent Ronnie Thompson. "We may have one or two people who we still want to talk to."
And they hope to have it completed in the next two weeks. The deputy is on paid leave until the investigation is complete.
