ADEL, Ga. (WTXL) - The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) Douglas Regional Office and the Adel Police Department are looking for those responsible for a shooting that left one dead and one critically injured.

On August 12, 2014 at about 10:36 p.m., Cook County 911 got a call that two people had been shot inside the Adel Housing Authority at 500 Holiday Street. Police say 25-year old Edward Ferguson and 18-year old Anthony Hill were each shot several times as they were passing through the complex. Ferguson was pronounced dead that evening at a local hospital and Hill was taken to another hospital for his life-threatening injuries. Hill survived the shooting.

More than one year after the shooting, the GBI is still looking for answers and wants to remind the public that there has been no arrest in this case. They are asking anyone with information to come forward and call GBI Special Agent Jason Nipper at (912) 389-4103 or Adel Police Dept. Detective Jonathan Blake at (229) 896-2224 ext. 1308.

They are offering a $4,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for Ferguson’s death and Hill’s assault.
