BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - Multiple agencies have partnered together to offer a $7,500 reward after a man was found shot to death in Bainbridge on Thursday.

Investigators with Bainbridge Public Safety reached out to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to investigate a death in the city.

According to a spokesperson for Bainbridge, BPS, Decatur County Citizens Against Crime and The Post Searchlight worked together to offer the reward for information that leads to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for Moore's death.
