GBI investigating Saturday night shootout in Sparta
A Milledgeville man remained in critical condition as of press time earlier this week, while investigators continued to catalog roughly 200 shell casings recovered from the scene of a massive shootout in nearby Sparta Saturday night.
Catavius Reeves, 29, reportedly sustained gun shot wounds to both his head and one of his upper arms. His condition was listed as “critical.” Two other Baldwin County residents – Johnny Chapple, 35, and Shanerica Chester, 28 – also were shot and listed in “stable” condition.
The shootout reportedly began after an argument between members of the same gang, some from Milledgeville and some from Sparta. As of press time earlier this week, there had been no retaliatory shootings here in Baldwin County stemming from the incident, according to investigators.
All totaled, seven people were shot outside of the party, one fatally.
