August 6, 2007

WAYNESBORO, Ga.---Agents with the Georgia Bureau of Investigations are investigating a deadly shooting in Burke County that left a 16-year-old boy dead.

It happened around 10:45 Sunday night on the 1400 block of Westgate Drive in Waynesboro. A number of witnesses called News 12 saying they heard multiple shots fired, and investigators confirm that this was the case.

"Still under investigation," said Waynesboro Chief Investigator Gene Boseman. "We have several casings of two different weapons, so that's what we're looking into right now."

The victim's name has not been released yet, but News 12 has learned this same 16-year-old was shot three weeks ago in a separate incident.

There's no word on any suspects in this case. The chief investigator for the city of Waynesboro says this is the first murder he's seen in several years.
