A tragic incident occurred in the small town of Moultrie, south of Atlanta, where a shooter killed three people. The gunman first killed his mother and grandmother, both of whom were at neighbouring homes before proceeding to shoot a 41-year-old McDonald’s manager and later taking his own life. Jerry Goodwin revealed that police had been called the day before when the alleged shooter had fired a gun while shouting outside of his home. The authorities are investigating the fatal shootings that occurred at the fast food restaurant in the town, and at a crime scene on Sixth Street Southwest. The coroner did not release the identities of the victims or if there was a connection between the McDonald’s worker and the shooter. Law enforcement is currently investigating the matter with the help of the Georgia Bureau of Investigations. Although there was not an immediate public threat, the Moultrie Police Department requested that the investigation be thoroughly conducted. The victim in the McDonald’s shooting was the early morning manager of the restaurant, and the shooter had previously been an employee there. The incident comes shortly after another tragic shooting incident, which occurred the previous day when a Coast Guard veteran opened fire in an Atlanta medical building, killing one woman and harming four more victims before being arrested.
