Tifton Police investigate two shootings

TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

A Tifton man remains in critical condition after a weekend shooting. 24 year-old Malcolm Denson is being treated at a Macon hospital.

An officer heard gunshots Sunday night in the 700 block of West 11th St. and found Denson shot in the back inside a car. Two other people in the car were not hurt.

Police have talked to one of them but are still looking for the other. "Right now, we're trying to track down the other guy that was in the car, certainly, see if he can tell us anything more. Any witnesses that saw anything for that matter even heard anything would be interested in talking too," said Lt. Lee Dunston.

Police say they don't know the motive and don't have any suspects.

They're also trying to find out who fired shots into a home with a mother and two young children inside.

Shardae Marshall was in her home in the 400 block of Church Lane around midnight when she says more than 15 bullets hit her home. Two went through the walls.

Her 5 year-old son and 3 month-old daughter and a friend were inside at the time. Marshall said, "I really don't feel safe in my own home, and me and my children really could've got killed last night. Just because somebody just want to come by and shoot up the place or animosity against somebody for nothing really."

No one was hurt. Tifton Police believe the shooter was standing behind a nearby house.

They hope tipsters will call with information about both shootings.
