Det. Stewart Williamson with Dougherty County Police says they have made a second arrest in connection with the shooting at Paradise Village mobile home park at Holly Drive. He also says they are looking for a third suspect who recently ran from Albany police.
Police arrested Nathan Witter, 25, on Wednesday in connection with the Dec. 26 shooting; last week they arrested Cedric Wingfield, 27.
"Actually Mr. Witter was already placed in jail a couple days after this incident in reference to another case he has against him. Mr. Wingfield turned himself in to us, come talk to us, had information he would like to tell us," says Williamson. He says the public's tips and eye witness accounts played a large part leading up to these arrests.
Witter is charged with armed robbery, aggravated battery, three counts of aggravated assault and three counts of possession of a firearm during a crime. Wingfield received the same charges with the addition of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Dougherty County police are now looking for Cavoris Harvey, 24, (see picture in slideshow) in relation to the shooting. Police say he has been seen in the last week in the Malone Drive, Cromartie Beach Drive and Rosedale Drive areas. Williamson says Harvey is considered armed and dangerous.
If you have any information about Harvey you are urged to call Crime Stoppers at (229) 436-TIPS, Dougherty County Police Department at (229) 430-6600 or your local law enforcement agency.
On Dec. 26, Augustin Cobrera-Lopez, 45, was shot above the right eye at the Paradise Village mobile home park.
"The victim is recovering, he is doing better, he's out of the hospital he has since left town at an undisclosed location trying to recuperate and get his life back in order," says Williamson. Williamson says he spoke with neighbors Wednesday evening; he says they told him they are happy to see arrests being made quickly.
"We request that anytime someone has an incident like this occur especially in the Hispanic community, don't be afraid to call law enforcement. We're here to help and we will do whatever we can to keep them safe," says Williamson.
