MILLEDGEVILLE, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A man is dead after being found Tuesday night with multiple gunshot wounds.
Major Brad King with the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office told 41NBC the 911 center in Baldwin County received a phone call concerning gunshots heard off Vinson Highway. Deputies arrived to the scene and found a man with multiple gunshot wounds.
According to King, the 911 call came ten minutes after 9:00 p.m., and deputies responded to the scene at 1863 Benson Highway at Southwood Mobile Home Park, where they found 21-year-old Javon Jackson of Columbus with multiple gunshot wounds. King says Jackson’s wounds were treated on scene before he was taken to the emergency room at Atrium Health Navicent Baldwin, where he later died.
