ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Sylvester police department is still investigating whether bullying led to a 14-year-old boy shooting himself.

It was December 10th that Dustin Hammonds committed suicide at his home in Worth County. The school system has launched an investigation and asked the police to assist them.

So far, investigators say there is no evidence to indicate that Hammonds was bullied.    

"I don't think so at this point, from what we have gotten so far, from the information that we receive from the people that was interviewed at this point, right now its still under investigation to determine if we have that or not," says Sgt. Kenneth Washington, with Criminal investigations.

He says they will  be interviewing more students in faculty in the next few weeks.
