Moultrie police believe two separate shootings on Wednesday could be connected.

No one was injured when someone shot at a house in the 200 block of Sixth Avenue Southeast. It was shot at least eight times Wednesday morning.

In the afternoon, 60-year old Ellis Bowman was shot in the chest and 51-year old Kimberly Conger was shot in the neck while the two were sitting in a pickup truck parked in the 800 block of Sixth Street Southeast.

Both Bowman and Conger were treated for their wounds at a local hospital.

"Definitely more than the one that was involved in the original shooting, and then of course anyone that may have been involved in the retaliation, so it's certainly multiple offenders,” said Lt. Steven Colgan.

37-year-old Earl Robertson turned himself in Wednesday morning after police say he shot and robbed 23-year-old Clarence Drew in the same block of Sixth Avenue Southeast Tuesday night. Anyone with information regarding the other shootings are asked to call Moultrie Police.
