Chattooga County Sheriff Mark Schrader has formally released the names of the victims involved in Tuesday morning’s triple shooting that left two individuals deceased and one individual injured.
Deceased were a mother and son, Linda Mae Everett age 61 and her 35-year old son, Joe Edward Brown.
The injured victim has been identified as
Daryl Lee Marsh, age 46. Marsh is currently at a local hospital where he has underwent two surgeries. Sources close to Marsh told AllOnGeorgia, “…he was shot in his cheek and (the bullet) went through his neck and into his shoulder..he is not out of the woods yet.”
A gunshot wound which penetrated Marsh’s cheek, neck and shoulder would explain the “language barrier” and the difficulty 911 dispatchers had understanding him when he called for help.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced arrest warrants were issued for James Mauldin “Steven”, age 38, 185 lbs, 5’7” tall, for the murder of two people in Chattooga County.
