A second man has died following a shooting in Coweta County last week, authorities said Tuesday.

Coweta deputies were called to the area of Deep South Road near Johnson Road about a shooting shortly after midnight Jan. 17, the sheriff’s office said in a statement. Responding deputies found two men, both with gunshot wounds to the head.

A helicopter was requested to fly the men to a hospital, but one of them went into cardiac arrest before he could be loaded into the aircraft, the sheriff’s office said. Marvin Bridges Jr., 55, was taken to Piedmont Newnan Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The second victim, identified as 54-year-old Kip Harris, was flown to Grady Memorial Hospital. He was pronounced dead Friday.

No other information was released about what may have led up to the shooting. The sheriff’s office is offering a reward of up to $2,000. Anyone with information is asked to call 770-254-3911.
