It was on Jan. 17, when Coweta deputies were called to Deep South Road in Senoia to investigate a possible shooting.

When deputies arrived, they reportedly found two men shot in the head.

Authorities said one of the victims suffered a heart attack just before he could be loaded into a helicopter. The man was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The second victim was also taken to a nearby hospital and later died.


The two victims were identified as Marvin Bridges,55, and Kip Harris,54.

Family members spoke to Channel 2′s Justin Carter and said they couldn’t understand how the shooting could happen.

“He took care of people, so I really don’t understand how this could happen,” said Christion Bridges, the victim’s son. “He was giving, caring, loving and he shared with the community. I don’t know anyone who would do that.”

The sheriff’s office continued to follow up on leads from Jan. 24 and even put another request on social media on Mar. 22.
