CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

Officials have identified the two who died following a double homicide in Cordele.

Agents with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation identified the men as Shaquaveon M. Felder, 24, and Jacrro L. Odom, 35, both of Cordele.

Police responded to a 'shots fired' call at a home on West 15th Avenue around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday to find two people dead.

Cordele Police, GBI and Crisp Co. Sheriff's Office Investigators continued searching for answers Friday, even bringing several people in for questioning in the double homicide.

This afternoon, WALB News 10's Emileigh Forrester watched as Crisp County Sheriff's Deputies brought three people to the Cordele Police Department for questioning related to the case.

"There will be numerous people brought in for questioning," said Cordele Police Chief Rob Rodriguez. "(It) doesn't necessarily mean they have a direct involvement, or it may mean they do."

The community got a chance to mourn Felder and Odom at a vigil Thursday night.

Friday, Chief Rodriguez quoted a pastor who spoke, saying citizens can keep more crimes like these from happening.

"It's not individuals that are coming to Cordele to commit these offenses," said Chief Rodriguez. "It's individuals here. The only way to prevent these things from happening is to engage with law enforcement."

"They didn't mess with nobody," said Kiana Hughes who lived next door to where the shooting happened. "They stayed in their own little world."

Hughes said she and her son are moving out, after someone shot and killed Felder and Odom next door.

Investigators have not made any arrests in the case.

Police believe someone may know something that could lead to an arrest in this case.

If anyone has any information about this incident, please contact the Cordele Police Department or the Georgia Bureau of Investigation at 229-276-2921.
