GLENNVILLE, Ga. (WTOC) - The Tattnall County Sheriff’s Office and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) are investigating a death in Glennville.

It happened around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 200 block of Bull Street. The Tattnall County sheriff said GBI agents arrived on scene around 6 a.m. Thursday.

The sheriff’s office responded to the home after someone got back to their house and found a man dead inside. GBI says officers arrived and noted that 47-year-old Thomas James Doe appeared to have been shot.

GBI said Doe did not live at the home. They have not provided any info on whether Doe has any connection to the homeowner who found him.

According to the GBI, a gray GMC Yukon is missing from the home with Georgia tag TAN8662.

The GBI says they don’t have a suspect just yet.

Neighbors say this normally a quiet area and were shocked to learn a fatal shooting happened while most of them were asleep.

Hours after GBI arrived to assist Tattnall County Sheriff’s Office, GBI agents were back on scene Thursday afternoon. They were using drones and taking photos as part of their investigation.

Investigators still have not said if this was a targeted or random incident.

Anyone with information about this case or the whereabouts of the missing vehicle is urged to contact the Tattnall County Sheriff’s Office at 912-557-6777 or the GBI at 912–871–1121.
