MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Moultrie Police called in the GBI to assist with a shooting investigation, which happened about 3:30 Sunday morning.

A confrontation between two men started with a fight between several women.

Officers found a crowd surrounding the body of Anthony Dale Lee in the 200 block of 4th Street in northwest Moultrie.

A witness told police that an argument broke out near the 50 Yard Line Club, and soon, a man got into a physical confrontation with the victim. 

They said a man was poking Lee, and knocked a drink from his hand. That's when shots were fired, and Lee was struck by at least one bullet.

He was taken to the hospital in Moultrie, but died of his wounds.

The GBI says Lee's body was transported to the GBI Medical Examiner’s Office in Macon,  for an autopsy today. 

Randall Maurice Lyles, and his brother Rakeem Martez Lyles, were also both shot in the incident.

Randall Maurice Lyles has been charged with Felony Murder, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Crime and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon. 

Rakeem Martez Lyles was released from the Hospital on Sunday, September 11, 2016 and transferred to the Colquitt County Jail where he was booked on an outstanding Probation Warrant.
