COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) –
Homicide detectives are looking for a suspect driving a gold, or tan, Ford pick-up truck in the investigation of a murder that took place at the intersection of 7th St. and Coolidge Ave. on September 19, 2013.
Investigators say 34-year-old David Scott was shot and killed during the incident. Scott was taken to Columbus Regional Medical Center and pronounced dead in the early morning on September 20.
According to police, when the officers first arrived at the scene, they found a white Chevrolet Impala in the middle of the road with its back wheels on the curb. Scott was in the driver’s seat, and had been shot in the head.
Another passenger was also in the car at the time, but he was unharmed.
