1 dead after shooting on Rucker Lane in Statesboro

STATESBORO, Ga. (WTOC) -Statesboro Police are investigating after one person was shot to death near a home on Rucker Lane.

Statesboro Police say they got a report a little before 7:30 of shots fired on Rucker Lane at the One Eleven South apartment complex. They found one man in the parking lot who’d been shot. EMT’s tried to save him but couldn’t.

The victim has been identified as 19-year-old Morice Shiggs.

Investigators spoke to the few neighbors who were there during the holidays. This marks the ninth homicide of the year in the city. But police say there’s no common threads between them.

“We can’t draw any conclusions or connections between the homicides we’ve seen this year, as far as the same people or being in the same kind of activities. They’ve all been unique in their own way,” said Capt. Jared Akins with Statesboro Police.

Detectives are asking for help as they work to investigate the events surrounding Shiggs’ death.

Information can be forwarded directly to Det. Cross or Cpt. Akins at 912-764-9911 or anonymously to tips@statesboroga.gov
