Here is the redacted narrative of the Albany Police officer’s report on this murder-

I responded in normal mode to 417 West 3rd Ave (Phoebe Putney Emergency Center) in reference to a shooting. I made contact with Tevin Scott who advised he was walking out of his mother`s house (1502 W. Highland Ave) when a gray sedan pulled up and shot him in his right wrist. Tevin said the car went west towards Magnolia St. Tevin said he didn`t know who or why they shot him. Tevin said Bobby Upshaw (mother`s boyfriend) took him to the emergency room.

I made contact with Yashika Brown(Mother) who advised someone called her daughter (Unknown Name) and said her son Murray Scott had been shot several times near the 400 block of Willow Street. Brown said she rushed out of the house and heard Tevin saying he was shot in his hand. Brown said she did not hear any gunshots near her house. Brown advised she doesn’t know who transported Murray to the emergency room. I observed Murray was lying on the trauma operation table with eight gunshot wounds to his right thigh and hip. Murray also had six gunshot wounds to his groin area.

I observed that Tevin had a gunshot wound to his right wrist. Dougherty County Coroner Michael Fowler was on scene and pronounced Murray was deceased at 1840 hours on 07112021. Fowler said Murray`s body will be placed in the Phoebe Putney morgue and Dougherty EMS will transport his body to the crime lab for an autopsy.
