AUGUSTA, Ga. - The body of 22-year old Jimmy Quarles was found at 310 1st Street in downtown Augusta.

Officers arrived at the scene around 12:45 pm. The body was found in the backyard of an abandoned house near a car.

Investigators say Quarles died of a single gunshot wound to the head.

Sgt. Richard Roundtree says it appears the shooting happened at the abandoned home and it's not a case where the body was dropped off.

"Our main goal is to see what brought the subject to this particular area and what led to this violent act," said Roundtree.

    I was very saddened to hear that Jimmy, one of my former students, is dead. He was such a mannerable young man with high, moral values that were instilled into him by his parents. His father was my realtor and I remember telling him what a fine job he had done with his son and how proud he should be. His comment was that he and his wife did the best that they could and left the rest in God's hands. I pray that Jimmy is now with God and is being protected by His unfaltering hands. To Mr. & Mrs. Quarles, may you find peace in the fact that your son was a fine young man and all of us who knew him can attest to that.

    I am saddened that another young man is gone forever. It said he lived on Conniston Drive. That is in Hephzibah. Hephzibah is also where that Colur Tyme Tattooz gang raid was. I hope this wasn't some kind of retaliation. Please, public, do not jump to conclusions, things are not always as they might appear at first. Try to help investigators all you can, but be careful that you don't get targeted at the same time. Would a description of the car they found there help the public help the investigators somehow? Was it his car?

    The CRIME in Augsta has gotten horrible something needs to be done to get this under control there are still unsolved murders in Augusta and its sad to say and I hope I am wrong but it seems as if this case will go unsolved as well I knew Jimmy and his family for a long time and I am so sorry this happened to him I just wish the young men of today would just stop and realize that life is too short for the nonsense. My prayeres go out to the Quarles family and I pray that whom ever did committed this horrible crime is brought to Justice even though it wont bring Jimmy back but who ever did it how can you go with your life as if you done nothing? To all please just stop the ignorance Jimmy was someone brother,father,and child and it hurts me to know that he isnt here anymore over something so stupid.
