Murder victim identified


The Griffin Police Department has identified the victim in an early Thursday murder as 36-year-old Quentin D. Poole.

According to GPD Chief Mike Yates, Poole sustained multiple gunshot wounds during what appears to be a home invasion at 815 Slaton Avenue.

The incident was reported to authorities at approximately 1 a.m. Thursday.

A second victim was injured and transported to the emergency room of WellStar Spalding Regional Hospital. That victim was treated and released.

Officials say the incident was perpetrated by three or four black males with bandanas over their faces.

“We’re actively running down leads,” Yates said, describing the investigation as active and fluid.

Yates said the incident appears to be drug-related.

Anyone with information pertaining to this incident is asked to call the Griffin Police Department at 770.229.6450.
