15-year-old boys charged with murder in north Georgia man's death

FANNIN COUNTY, Ga. — Two 15-year-old boys were arrested Tuesday in the shooting death of a 33-year-old man from north Georgia.

Blake Dickey and Hunter Hill were each charged with one count of murder after officials found the body of Justin McKinney early Tuesday in Morganton, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

In addition to McKinney, a woman was also wounded in the shooting.

The teens were arrested later Tuesday, according to the Fannin County Sheriff’s Office. They will be housed at a youth detention center.

Officials did not say whether the teens knew the victim or if they have found a motive.


"It's terrifying to know that happened around here," said Carley Sisson.

Sisson wasn't the only resident in the area to say she was suprised.

"It's sad. They're so young," Jennifer Woodards said.

Morganton, in Fannin County, is located near Blue Ridge, about 100 miles north of Atlanta.
