The Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting incident which left a 17-year-old female dead. Another male was also injured.
BCSO reported Tuesday that in the early morning hours of Sunday, April 16, 2023, the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office received a call from 911 Central dispatch that a subject had been shot and was being transported to the East Georgia Regional Medical Center by a “private vehicle”.
Deputies and Investigators responded to the Emergency Room area of East Georgia Hospital in attempts to gain further information about this incident.
Upon arrival it was found out that a 17-year-old female, later identified as Kelsey Amanda McDuffie, had sustained a gunshot wound to the rear of her head.
After finding out that the incident occurred at 1342 Arthur Nuburn Jr. Road (Bulloch County, Ga), deputies were dispatched to that location. Upon arrival deputies
found out that an 18-year-old male on the scene, now identified as Adan Allen Keelin, also sustained a gunshot wound to his left hand.
Preliminary investigation revealed that Keelin was showing McDuffie how to disassemble and reassemble a 9mm semi-auto handgun. During this activity, the handgun discharged, while in the hands of Keelin. The bullet traveled through Keelin’s left hand and struck McDuffie in the rear of her head. Keelin was transported to East Georgia Regional Hospital where he was treated and released.
McDuffie was flown to Memorial Medical Center in Savannah, Ga. for surgery and has since succumbed to her injuries.
