THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Four people from Thomasville are in jail charged with murdering a South Carolina Army Veteran.

Hassan Williams was found shot to death Tuesday morning.

Between Wednesday night and Thursday morning, Thomasville Police arrested 22-year old Kiera Graham, 26-year old Kimberly Williams, 20-year old Alvin Davis, and 18-year old Chaquel Cook.

But investigators still have a lot of questions left to answer.

"At this time we don't know any other individuals that might have been involved, at this time. Then again the investigation is ongoing so we really don't know what the rest of the investigation will bring," said Lt. Eric Hampton.

While we still do not know the connection between Hassan Williams and the suspects, we know Kiera Graham and Kimberly Williams live together.

Chaquel Cook and Alvin Davis III are also roommates.

Two of the suspects live at 217 Simeon Street. Not even two blocks from where Williams' body was found.

"Where the actual crime took place, that is still under investigation. We are still looking into that. We're not going to say where it actually happened yet because it is still under investigation," said Hampton.

Hassan Williams was honorably discharged just 10 days ago from the Army.

Investigators are still unsure what he was doing in Thomasville.

"That's still under investigation. We're trying to see who knew him. Who he might have been seen with," said Hampton.

Police say it was the community who helped solve this case.

"We would just like to thank the community for all their help. It was a collaborative effort with the Sheriffs Office, GBI, the Thomas County Magistrate Court who came in and issued warrants at 2am," said Hampton.

While we do know Williams was shot twice, investigators say they are awaiting the results of the autopsy to determine the official cause of death.

All four suspects are charged with first degree murder.

They were denied bond during initial court appearances Thursday.
