A Baldwin County grand jury returned a nine-count indictment against a Milledgeville man on Tuesday in connection with the shooting death of 27-year-old Lamarcus “Marc” Brown in September.
Grand jurors indicted Tyree Derion Ingram, 20, on assorted felony charges related to the shooting, which reportedly happened on the campus of Central State Hospital. Those charges included murder, three counts of felony murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a First Offender, Violation of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act for possession of cocaine and theft by receiving stolen property.
The charges in the indictment were made public earlier this week by the Baldwin County Superior Court Clerk’s Office.
The victim was shot multiple times, according to Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office Detective Capt. Brad King, who heads the criminal investigations division.
During the course of the investigation, Detective Robert Butch learned that Brown was actually shot several hours before his body was discovered inside his parked car near the intersection of Davis Drive and Jackson Street.
A passerby happened to see the car partially in the roadway and telephoned authorities, who subsequently discovered Brown’s body inside.
Baldwin County Deputy Coroner Ken Garland was called to the scene and immediately pronounced Brown dead.
An autopsy was later performed at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Crime Laboratory in Macon to determine the exact cause of death.
Following Ingram’s arrest, the sheriff’s office issued a press release.
“The sheriff’s office would like to thank the community for their response to this incident,” according to the press release. “Our staff attributes the quick resolution to this investigation to the members of the community that worked with our investigators to provide much needed information. The arrest illustrates a combination of a great investigation and assistance from the citizens of our community.”
Ingram continues to be held without bond in the Baldwin County Law Enforcement Center.
