A Lowndes County man is behind bars after deputies uncovered nearly half a million dollars of marijuana.
TIFT COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Spray paint marks the spot where 65-year-old Russell Richardson was shot. Deputies were called to the corner of Emerson O'Bynes Avenue and Whiddon Street just after 9:00 PM Monday night.
"He lived on 509 Washington street in Tifton and he was shot multiple times," said GBI Special Agent, Mark Pro.
Willie Moore heard the gun fire Monday night. "They usually shoot around here all the time. It's a common thing. You hear it but you just don't think nothing of it." But it wasn't until he heard the sirens that he know this time was different. "Until I heard the ambulance, than I thought somebody probably got shot."
And though shooting is not unusual in this neighborhood, residents are surprised someone would target Richardson. "He is a nice person. Everyone around here knew him because he does a lot of odd jobs for folks," said Moore.
"Right now it appears to be drug related and possibly robbery," said Pro. Now investigators are combing the streets and looking for any witnesses of the crime. "At this point we are following up on leads, and at this point we have not made any arrest," said Pro.
"I knew him to never mess with anyone. And it's just tragic what happened," said Moore. And he hopes someone will come forward and help investigators put the killer behind bars. Anyone with any information on this case should call the Tift County Sheriff department.
