On 8/20/23 SPD officers and detectives responded to the area of Eagle Court Apartments on Lanier Drive for a robbery which had occurred at that location. An adult male reported being robbed of his possessions by several male suspects who had subsequently fled in a vehicle.
Less than one hour later, officers and detectives responded to Ladd Circle for a report of a shooting. Upon their arrival, officers located 17 year old Jabarri Walker deceased from multiple gunshot wounds. The scene was processed over a period of several hours and the entire neighborhood canvassed for witnesses and video evidence, including video obtained via the Fusus system and Flock tag readers.
It soon became apparent that the two incidents were connected and also tied into a vehicle reported stolen to the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office. Working with BCSO investigators, the stolen vehicle was later recovered after having been dumped and was subsequently processed for evidence. Multiple search warrants were issued for electronic data and for specific locations during the course of these parallel investigations. Numerous interviews were conducted. Detectives methodically built their cases over the subsequent two months.
On 11/9/23, detectives served arrest warrants for Murder and Aggravated Assault
related to the Ladd Circle homicide on four defendants. They are:
- Cameron Rock (17, Lanier Drive, Statesboro)
- Lucas Fields (17, Orleans Trail, Statesboro)
- Unnamed 16 year old juvenile
- Unnamed 15 year old juvenile
These defendants were also charged with Robbery related to the Eagle Court incident. They also face charges related to the vehicle reported stolen to BCSO. Investigation into the defendants activities continue, and further charges stemming from other incidents are possible. They remain either in the custody of the Bulloch County Jail or the Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice.
