Three dead in Georgia shooting


(WMGT) Georgia investigators are still searching for answers after woman, a 17-month-old baby and their neighbor were shot and killed overnight outside of their Byromville home.

Officials say a 17- year-old-girl who was shot several times is still fighting for her life.

Authorities say at the time of the shooting, 47-year-old Priscilla Adams was doing her daily routine of waking up early to take the baby to a daycare, and to take her 17-year-old daughter to school.

When deputies called the GBI to help investigate the scene, they found 60-year-old Willie James Merrell, also shot to death right behind his house.

“We have some crime, we have our average usual, but nothing like this. We are 100% committed to getting to the bottom of this, holding whoever responsible for what they’ve done,” says Sheriff Craig Peavy.
