From NBC News:
Authorities in Georgia on Friday issued four arrest warrants for murder against a 27-year-old man in the fatal shootings of four people and the wounding of a fifth.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation, or GBI, said in a statement that the warrants were issued for Daylon Delon Gamble, who is still at large.
Police in Rockmart, a town of about 4,000 people in Polk County about 40 miles northwest of Atlanta, reported two double homicide cases in two separate locations at around 8 p.m. Thursday, authorities said.
Rockmart Police Chief Keith Sorrells said Thursday that two men and two women were killed at two scenes near each other, two of them at a house and the others at an apartment about 300 yards away a few minutes later.
The dead were identified by the GBI as Helen Rose Mitchell, 48, and Jaequnn Davis, 19. A third victim Peerless Brown, 24, was also found wounded at the same scene and was airlifted to Atlanta Medical Center, where he is being treated. Brown appeared to have been shot in the face, Sorrells said Thursday.
Dadrian Cummings, 26, and Arkeyla Perry, 24, were dead at a second scene, according to the GBI. NBC affiliate WXIA of Atlanta reported that they were boyfriend and girlfriend.
Sorrells said Thursday that the victims appeared to have been targeted. "But I don't know why,” he said.
The GBI said Friday that Gamble, the suspect, fled the scene of the shooting and stole a Ford truck, which was later found in Bartow County.
"He is considered armed and very dangerous and is actively being sought by local, state and federal authorities at this time," the law enforcement agency said.
Thoughts? I apologize for not posting this sooner as I didn't see this case behind the news story about the OTHER breaking news mass murder suspect, Dakota Theriot. I am placing Gamble in the Fugitives on TV section since some national media have picked up the story, although not as much as the manhunt for Theriot. (Hate to go that route, but we have often criticized the news for not covering a missing child or murder case as extensively when it involves minorities as opposed to white missing children and victims).
I hope this manhunt ends soon since like the Theriot case this is an extremely dangerous alleged suspect, and that is putting it mildly.
Based on news reports, Gamble was still at large at least as of a few hours ago on January 26th, 2019.
