WALTHOURVILLE, GA (WTOC) - The Liberty County Sheriff's Office is investigating a fatal shooting that took place in a mobile home park in Walthourville on Monday.

It happened at the Cedar Hill Mobile Home Park. Officials say one person has died as a result of the incident,.

The Liberty County Sheriff's Office has obtained warrants for Thomas Edward Jordan, Jr. of Hinesville. Officials believe he may be trying to leave town. Jordan drives a burgundy Toyota Tundra, with the license plate: PDR 2552.

As investigators try to piece together what happened there Monday morning, the victim's father and others try to figure out why it happened.

Neighbors heard shots and called 911 a little after 10 a.m. Officers got here quickly and found 37-year-old Kenneth Jackson bleeding from gunshot wounds. Jackson died as crews tried to save him.

His father got the phone call no parent can imagine. He wants his son's killer found.

"Because it was uncalled for! No need for it!! For him to do that was unnecessary," said Clifford Reeves, father.

He describes his son as quiet and someone who mostly stayed at home here due to vision problems.

"It's so senseless. We see it too often, young men killed for no reason. It's frustrating, very frustrating," said Liberty County Sheriff Steve Sikes.

Jackson's father hopes neighbors and friends will work with investigators to find the shooter and some explanation.

"Whoever did this, I hope they find him expeditiously and bring him to justice and give him the maximum of what the law allows," said Reeves.

Investigators want to hear from anyone who might know anything about this case, no matter how small that info might seem.
