WAYNESBORO, Ga. — One man has been arrested and another is being sought in connection with a fatal shooting at a Georgia apartment complex.

WRDW-TV reports that Burke County Chief Deputy Lewis Blanchard says responding authorities found 35-year-old Ronald Henry Davis with multiple gunshot wounds early Sunday morning. Davis was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.

Investigators took 36-year-old Marion Leon Hamilton Jr. into custody a short while later at a nearby convenience store. Hamilton faces murder and weapons charges. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.

Burke County deputies said Wednesday that they are looking for 22-year-old James Abrams Jr. Abrams is accused of obstructing and interfering with the crime scene at Magnolia Acres Apartments.

The sheriff’s office, Waynesboro police and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation continue to investigate.
