VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -  George Quezergue was shot Saturday night between two buildings in a shopping center.

Police have identified a person of interest.

Friends and family members are in a disbelief and want justice.

Friends and family gather at the Forest Park Center where George Quezergue was gunned down Saturday night.

 "If you did it, you don't know what kind of person he was but I just want justice," said Wayne Butler, the victim's best friend.

"He was a very private person he stayed mostly to himself," said Kwame Holder, the victim's brother.

That's why he can't understand why anyone would want to kill him.

"We interviewed multiple witnesses out there which quite frankly has been key in helping us identify a person of interest in addition to other law enforcement agencies working with us," said Valdosta Police Cmdr. Brian Childress.

Witnesses heard gun shots and moments later his body was found right here.

He was shot three times. EMS tried to revive him.

"At times he could make you laugh when he wasn't even trying to make you laugh," said Holder.

The news was a shock to Kandice Anderson, who described her friend as likeable and humble. Butler says the person who did it will pay for it.

"You're going to get what you deserve," said Butler.

Accepting such a loss is tough and those who knew George Quezergue mourn over the loss of a sibling, friend and son.

Police say they continue to process evidence and hope to make an arrest in the case this week.

They think they know the motive for the shooting, but they won't talk about it publicly yet.
