The Statesboro Police Department is investigating a homicide that occurred on Monday.
From the press release from the agency on Tuesday:
On 2/12/24 at 5:30 p.m. SPD officers responded to Cambridge the Pines Apartments in the 100 block of Lanier Drive in Statesboro for a report of shots fired. While these officers were still enroute to the Pines, two adult males arrived at East Georgia Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening gunshot wounds. As officers arrived at the Pines, they located an adult male with gunshot wounds and began rendering aid. Bulloch County EMS arrived on scene but determined that the adult male was deceased. Detectives responded to both the Pines and EGRMC to begin the criminal investigation.
During the course of the evening, detectives determined that the surviving males had driven from the Pines after being shot and that they and the deceased male were connected. At this point in the investigation, it appears as though a dispute between the identified individuals resulted in gunfire.
The identities of the involved individuals are not being released at this time pending further investigation. Additional releases will follow as the case progresses. Officers from the Georgia Southern University Police Department and deputies with the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office assisted in securing the scene and their assistance is greatly appreciated
