GBI Identifies Man Killed in Shootout with Bulloch Deputies

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has released a statement regarding an incident involving two Bulloch County deputies on Tuesday.

At the request of the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office, GBI agents are investigating an officer involved shooting in Statesboro, GA. One man, identified as Robert Allen Bostic, age 25, of Warner Robins, Georgia, died in the incident. No officers were injured.

Preliminary information indicates that on June 18, 2024, at about 2:45 p.m., Bulloch County Dispatch received a series of calls about a black Chevrolet Camaro. The calls described four separate incidents, including a hit and run, reckless driving, and shots being fired from the car. Deputies located a car matching the one described in the calls at the Gas Pro Travel Center located at the corner of Highway 301 and A.J. Riggs Rd. Before deputies arrived at the Gas Pro, Bostic pointed his gun at a patron who was at a nearby pump. The patron retreated to his vehicle and drove away. Bostic shot at the patron as he fled, hitting the back of the patron’s vehicle. When officers arrived, the Camaro was parked at a gas pump. A deputy pulled to the front of the car while another pulled to the rear. Bostic got out of the driver’s door and one of the deputies gave commands for Bostic to show his hands. Bostic pulled out a handgun and shot at one of the deputies. Both deputies shot at Bostic, hitting him multiple times.

Bostic was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Bostic’s body will be taken to the GBI Crime Lab where an autopsy will be performed.

The GBI will conduct an independent investigation. Once the investigation is complete, it will be given to the Ogeechee Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office for review.
