Two people were injured – one seriously – in a shooting Sunday afternoon on Kentucky Avenue.

Officers of the Griffin Police Department responded to the call at approximately 1:30 p.m. and rendered aid to the victims, one a 16-years-old male, until the arrival of emergency medical services personnel.

Due to the nature of his wounds, that victim was transported by air ambulance to Atlanta Medical Center.

He is listed in serious, but stable condition.

A second victim, Perderius Stewart, sustained minor injuries.

Investigators allege the shooting resulted from a dispute over money.

Multiple witnesses were interviewed, and search warrants were executed, resulting in three arrests.

Dequavious Holland, age 20, and Brandon Holland, age 22, both of Griffin, have each been charged with two counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Jabre’a Maddox, age 18, also of Griffin, has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault.

The Griffin Police Department received assistance in this investigation from the Henry County Sheriff’s Office, the Troup County Sheriff’s Office and the Lagrange Police Department.

Authorities say this investigation is ongoing and further arrests are possible.
