The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) is assisting Barrow County authorities in an investigation involving an alleged road rage incident that left one person dead Saturday morning.
Athens resident Ketravian Tyvon Cole, 20, was pronounced dead at the scene on Ga. 316, having succumbed to apparent gunshot wounds.
GBI Public Affairs Director Nelly Miles said the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office contacted the GBI around 1 a.m. Saturday, asking for assistance investigating the shooting that resulted in Cole's death.
"The incident was located on the westbound side of Ga. Highway 316 near its intersection with Jackson Trail Road," Miles said Saturday afternoon. "Another Athens man was injured by gunfire and taken to a nearby hospital."
That victim's name has not been released.
"Preliminary information indicates a dark colored sedan, unknown make and model, pulled up beside the victims' vehicle and opened fire," Miles said. "There were no descriptions of suspects."
Anyone with any information pertaining to this incident should contact the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office at 770-307-3080 or the GBI Athens Office at 706-552-2309.
