Authorities investigating fatal shooting in Toccoa
Courtesy of WNEG/ Toccoa investigators have a lookout for a vehicle that may belong to the suspect involved in a shooting on Wednesday afternoon.
Toccoa Police Chief Jimmy Mize said authorities are canvassing the county and surrounding areas for the suspect.
“We’ve got a BOLO out for a gray small Ford vehicle, like a Ford Escape or Ford Taurus with a white female driver with a Florida tag that was seen leaving the scene,” he said. “The Sheriff and the GSP are canvassing the county for that vehicle. They’ve got several ideas. They think they know who it is, but nobody for sure.”
Here’s what authrities know for now:
Toccoa Police Chief Jimmy Mize tells WNEG News it happened about 1:30 p.m. on South Alexander Street behind the Toccoa Pawn Shop.
Mize says the GBI has been brought in, but authorities have few details about what led up to the shooting.
“We don’t even know all of the people involved,” Mize said. “We know that there was a body and people out here. Right now, we don’t even have any witnesses. We have several people who came out after shots were heard, but no eyewitnesses yet.”
The victim, who has not been identified, was found lying on the side of Alexander St.
“They were working him when we got here. They were doing chest compressions and everything. Officers kept that up until EMS got here and transported out there,” Mize said.
