Early County Sheriff's investigators identified two people who were killed in a shooting Tuesday night.

According to a report, Leland Gleaton and Terry Cox were outside Cox's home at 48 Marion Street when they were shot to death.

The sheriff's office got a call just before 10 p.m. about a dispute and shots fired. Witnesses said a white pickup truck was seen driving away from the home.

Deputies spotted the truck on Georgia Highway 200 between Blakely and Damascus before they arrived.

They stopped the driver, a man from Anadulsia Alabama, and took him into custody. His name was not immediately released.

He has not been formally charged, but he is being held on suspicion.
