Georgia Couple Fatally Shot Inside Their Home, Toddler Found Safe Hours After Their Death

An unknown assailant gunned down a younger couple of their Georgia dwelling, police mentioned. Their toddler was discovered unhurt in the home early Thursday morning, hours after that they had died.

Cherokee County firefighter Justin Hicks, and his spouse Amber, have been discovered useless from gunshot wounds inside their Acworth dwelling round 9:30 a.m. 

A neighbor, Hannah Mabrey, described when an officer got here speeding out of the home with the couple’s 2-year-old son to WAGA-TV. She mentioned the officer had the boy by the torso and handed him over to his grandparents, who have been screaming, “Where’s my baby?”

The couple, each 31, had not too long ago moved into the neighborhood and have been enthusiastic about being householders. Cherokee County Fireplace Chief Tim Prather described Hicks as a “happy, funny, loved by many kind of guy.” Hicks had been with the division for six years. 

Cobb police spokesman Sgt. Wayne Delk mentioned, “this is being investigated as a double homicide.” He mentioned that thus far, the investigation has not uncovered any proof this can be a murder-suicide. It’s believed the capturing occurred someday between Wednesday night time and Thursday morning. 

A number of unknown assailants carried out the homicide, however no proof suggests the suspect stayed within the space.

Investigators haven’t mentioned what a attainable motive for the capturing is, sure.
