Griffin police are investigating a weekend shooting that left a 63-year-old man dead.
Officers responding to a report of a shooting around 10:30 p.m. Saturday in the 800 block of Crescent Lane found Harry Burkett of Hall County dead from a gunshot wound to the chest.
Griffin police Capt. Dwayne Jones said a multi-agency search of the area using a helicopter and tracking dogs was unsuccessful in finding the lone suspect, who was wearing a black stocking cap and sunglasses.
Jones said in an e-mail that while investigators have not established a motive for the slaying, “there is no indication that that shooting was gang related.”
The members of the state ethics commission, eager to bring order to one of the most disordered corners of state government, hired a “receiver” last week to heal their agency and then did they only thing they could.
