Wednesday, 19 August 2009

August 19--  The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is continuing its investigation of the shooting which took the life of a young Lyons man last Thursday night.

GBI Agent-In-Charge Greg Harvey confirmed Wednesday that 20-year-old Timothy Holbrook was holding a .22 caliber rifle which discharged and fatally wounded his roommate, 21-year-old Joshua O'Connor.

According to Harvey, the two were "involved in some kind of play fighting in which the firearm was involved."  The incident happened at their apartment on Skyline Boulevard in Lyons.  

Authorities are awaiting the results of an autopsy, according to the GBI.
