MITCHELL CO., GA (WALB) -

Two more Albany men are accused of shooting a man and leaving him for dead along a Mitchell County driveway.

The victim was shot multiple times June 21 and dumped in the woods beside old Georgia Highway 3 near Baconton.

Two Albany men were previously arrested.

Investigators said the four men shot 21-year-old Rashawn McGhee, and left him in a remote area of Mitchell County, but then returned later and shot him again.

Brothers, 18-year-old Issac Jenkins and 17-year-old Keshawn Lenear of Albany were arrested Tuesday, and charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment and aggravated assault.

Investigators said that they took McGhee to a remote driveway just south of the Mitchell County and Dougherty County line, and shot him.

"I think they intentionally drove him down into Mitchell County, and the shooting was intentional," said Investigator Robert Rumble.

Investigators said that a third brother, Datialion Jenkins and Myron Lee, previously arrested, were also involved.  

Officials said on June 21, the group shot McGhee and left him for dead beside a remote driveway.  But after driving back toward Albany, they turned around and drove back to McGhee, and shot him again.

More than a half dozen bullets were fired at McGhee.  

Investigators said he was hit a number of times in the  lower body, but is now recovering.

"He's paralyzed from the waist down, there is a possibility he may get the use of his legs back," explained Rumble.

Investigators said that it's possible the shooting was gang related, but they know the motive was a large amount of money.

"I think it was over a debt, that was owed. I'm not sure at this point to whom the debt was owed. But we believe it was over a substantial amount of money," explained Rumble.

McGhee was found by a homeowner who lived on that driveway.  

Investigators said it was fortunate none of the people who live in the area stopped while the shooting took place, because they likely would have been attacked too.

Jenkins and Lenear are in the Dougherty County jail now, but Mitchell County authorities expect to transfer them to their jail soon, as their investigation continues.
