WAYNESBORO, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - An investigation is underway in Burke County after sheriff’s deputies responded to a call in reference to a person who was struck by a car.

Burke County Sheriff’s Office deputies say they were called to Spread Oak Road just west of Hannah Lane, northwest of Waynesboro, around 5:39 a.m. Wednesday. Deputies found the body of a man a short time later.

The coroner identified the man as Brian Carswell. The coroner says Carswell died from an apparent gunshot wound, ruling the death as a homicide.

Carswell’s vehicle, a burgundy 2016 Chrysler 200, had also been reported stolen. Deputies later reported on Jan. 8 that they were in possession of the car.

Anyone with information is urged to call 706-554-6633 or 706-554-2133.
