Police: 11 shot, 1 killed in Valdosta

VALDOSTA -- Police say they are interviewing what they describe as "persons of interest" in an outbreak of shooting at a Valdosta apartment complex that killed one person and left 10 others wounded.

The dead man was identified as 19-year-old Sydney Bivins Jr.

Valdosta police Capt. Bobbi McGraw says Bivins was transported to South Georgia Medical Center where he died of a gunshot wound.

McGraw says that of the wounded, two remained hospitalized Monday and the rest were treated and released. She says three of those wounded were juveniles.

She says the gunfire appears to have started after a series of quarrels that broke out in a crowd gathered outside the complex in the south Georgia city about 5:30 p.m. Sunday. No arrests have been made.
