Poolroom suspects, victims identified
•••UPDATED 5:25 p.m. // The two men accused of opening fire Friday night have been identified by the MPD as George Washington, 34, and Marquis Whipple, 29. Both are in critical condition. The two bystanders/shooting victims were identified as Shari Shinholster, 37, and Quentis Ford, 30.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE // It was like something out of an Old West saloon.
A pair of men pulled out guns on each other at close range following a dispute, creating straight chaos at the new Columbia Pub & Billiards in the Big Lots shopping center. The poolroom has been open only for several months.
Unlike the Old West, however, there were plenty of security cameras in the establishment, and the Milledgeville Police Department has the whole thing on video.
Four people were shot in total, including two critically. The two men who were shot are also the suspects, according to investigators.
The MPD is expected to release the names of those two men later this afternoon, and Baldwin2k News will update this story.
The business reopened this afternoon, with a group of older ladies and gentlemen enjoying a laid back afternoon of shooting pool.
