MORGANTON, Ga. (FOX 5 Atlanta) - The agents with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and deputies with the Fannin County Sheriff's Office have charged two young teenagers with the murder of a 33-year-old man and the shooting of a woman.
Early in the morning on Tuesday, Dec. 4, deputies say they were called to a scene on Elrod Lane in Morganton.
The caller, 35-year-old Morganton resident Anna Franklin, told investigators she and a man had been shot.
By the time police got to the scene, 33-year-old Justin McKinney was dead. Medics rushed Franklin to a nearby hospital for treatment. The murder has stunned those who call Morganton home.
"Absolutely shocking. For a quiet neighborhood to have something like that happens, it's scary," Morganton resident Jack Rasmussen told FOX 5's Aungelique Proctor.
Even more alarming several parents and students told FOX 5 the teens showed up at Fannin County High School the same day as if nothing ever happened.
" I think it is kinda scary especially since they go to our school. I think it's just a scary thought that this happened the day before and then they came into school," high school junior Madison Mitchum said.
A few hours later, authorities arrested the two teenagers, 15-year-old Blake Dickey, also known as Blake Dye, and 15-year-old Hunter Hill for the murder. Deputies and the GBI have not yet released the events leading up to the murder.
Dickey and Hill have each been charged with a count of murder. Additional charges are pending.
They will be housed at the Elbert Shaw Regional Youth Detention Center.
