Authorities have arrested three Milledgeville men and a teen on criminal charges stemming from a shootout on the campus of Renaissance Park at Central State Hospital on Saturday afternoon.
Such was confirmed by the Milledgeville Police Department in a Wednesday afternoon press release.
Maj. Linc Boyer, commander of the Milledgeville Police Department’s road patrol division, said officers responded to the area of Swint Avenue and Broad Street in reference to multiple 911 calls of two vehicles shooting at one another.
“While officers were en route, they were advised of a male subject down in front of the old laundromat building, located at Swint Avenue and Bypass Road,” Boyer said in the press release. “Officers arrived on the scene and found a Lincoln Town Car wrecked into a utility pole with multiple bullet holes behind the building, and 25-year-old Ja-Quarius Marshall on the front side of the building suffering from at least one gunshot wound.”
Police also found Ja’Kobe Carnez Brown at the scene.
Boyer said Marshall and Brown were the occupants of the Lincoln Town Car.
While police were engaged in processing that crime scene, deputies with the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office notified police officers and detectives to let them know they had found an Audi SUV on Lee Street with multiple bullet holes in it, according to the press release.
MPD detectives began interviewing eyewitnesses to the shooting at CSH and reviewing video surveillance footage. Police later requested the assistance of crime scene specialists with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Region 6 Office in Milledgeville to help process the crime scene.
During the investigation, Kibias Mosley surfaced as the driver of the SUV, which was also occupied by a 16-year-old juvenile, Boyer said.
“The preliminary investigation indicates [Kibias] Mosley and the juvenile passenger of the Audi SUV, and [Ja’Kobe] Brown and [Ja-Quarius] Marshall of the Lincoln Town Car were in a rolling shootout with one another,” Boyer said in the press release. “When the Lincoln Town Car struck the utility pole, both J. Brown and J. Marshall got out of the vehicle and fled on foot. During this time, J. Marshall sustained a gunshot wound to his back and was also [run] over by the Audi SUV. The occupants of the Audi SUV then got out and began beating J. Marshall.”
There were several likely witnesses in the area as a Georgia College event with many participants was underway in the Pecan Grove at CSH, directly across from the Powell Building.
No one at the event was injured.
The shooting on the CSH campus sparked several other shootings in the area Saturday.
The shooting at CSH also left one of the victims paralyzed, according to a warrant viewed in the Baldwin County Magistrate’s Office on Wednesday afternoon by The Union-Recorder.
The warrants identified the suspects as Ja’Kobe Carnez Brown, 19, of the Timberlake Apartments, and Kibias Maliek Mosley, 24, of the 300 block of Meriwether Road.
Both suspects were reportedly taken into custody sometime Saturday night, according to records at the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office.
Multiple warrants were also taken out against Brown and Mosley, court records show.
The alleged crimes against the two suspects reportedly happened between 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, from the intersection of Coombs Avenue and Edwards Street to the intersection of Swint Avenue and Bypass Road at CSH.
Criminal charges were filed against Mosley, who, like Brown was also considered a victim in the case.
Those charges include felony possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, six counts of aggravated assault, aggravated battery, and recklessly endangering the safety of others.
Mosley is accused of being in the possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, according to one of the warrants filed against him. He reportedly fired the gun while in the midst of committing what police contend was an aggravated assault.
One of the aggravated assault counts against Mosley accuses him of using a deadly weapon with intent to kill. He reportedly assaulted the victim by firing several rounds at a car.
Mosley is also charged with aggravated assault in the beating of the victim with a firearm, resulting in serious bodily injury.
A fourth aggravated assault warrant accuses Mosley of firing multiple rounds at the car in which the victim was a passenger.
A fifth aggravated assault charge, meanwhile, accuses Mosley of using a motor vehicle with the intent to kill. He reportedly assaulted the victim by intentionally hitting him with the front of his car on the shoulder of the roadway near the intersection of Swint Avenue and Bypass Road.
A sixth charge of aggravated assault was filed against Mosley for reportedly firing multiple rounds at a victim, who was reportedly was running away at the time.
Mosley also was charged with aggravated battery with intent to kill. That same suspect also is charged with reckless endangering the safety of others.
Mosley is accused of discharging a firearm multiple times from a moving vehicle while traveling through the area of a crowded event.
Brown, meanwhile, is charged with aggravated assault.
The warrant accuses Brown of using a firearm to assault a victim by firing multiple rounds at a car that the victim was driving.
Another count of aggravated assault against Brown accuses him of using a firearm and assaulting a victim who was a passenger in a car that was shot at several times.
Brown is also charged with aggravated assault against another victim. He also was charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Marshall, meanwhile, is charged with one count of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and one count of recklessly endangering the safety of others.
The teen, who cannot be identified because he is a juvenile, is also charged with one count of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, possession of a firearm by a minor, and recklessly endangering the safety of others.
Another charge filed against Brown is for recklessly endangering the safety of others.
The case remains open, as does several other shooting cases that happened last weekend in the city and county.
