Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a shooting late Thursday night that killed a 35-year-old man.
No arrests have been made and investigators are asking for the public’s help in finding the person responsible for the fatal shooting, according to a press release Friday from the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office.
It was just before 11 p.m. when sheriff’s deputies were alerted about shots fired at 95 Pinecrest Drive in Bear Creek, the sheriff’s office reported.
When investigators arrived they found a man who lived in the neighborhood, Raymond Cotton Jr., 79 Pinecrest Drive, dead of at least one gunshot wound, authorities reported.
Neighbors told deputies that they heard multiple gunshots. They reported seeing an unknown vehicle speeding out of the area immediately after the gunshots were heard, according to the press release.
Sheriff’s deputies think Cotton was the victim of a homicide. They are looking for a description of the vehicle that sped away from the scene and the people who may have been responsible, according to the press release.
Investigators are urging anyone with information to call the department’s anonymous tip line at (919) 542-6116, or (919) 545-8150.
