The Macon Police Department is investigating a murder-suicide that took place just after midnight Saturday morning at 2280 Arrowwood Drive in Macon's Bloomfield area.
Police spokesperson Jami Gaudet says 19 year-old Vonn Gibbons was babysitting 7 year-old Jalon Griffin. Gibbons shot Jalon, then took his own life.
Detectives continue to seek a motive for the two deaths. They have conducted numerous interviews in the case, including the mother and sister of Vonn Gibbons, and the mother and family members of Jalon Griffin.
Evidence recovered from the crime scene was taken to the MPD Crime Lab. The Bibb County Medical Examiner will examine the bodies of Vonn Gibbons and Jalon Griffin on Monday.
