At about 1 a.m. Friday, June 26, Bainbridge Public Safety officers responded to Hutto-McIver Apartments on Martin Luther King Drive, after someone called 911 to report hearing gunshots.
Officers found a car that was damaged by bullets, and also noticed where bullets had struck the outside of an apartment building. However, no shooters or victims were found.
“Through further investigation, we believe the shooting was the result of an argument between multiple people, however, we were unable to determine what exactly the argument was about,” BPS Officer Chip Nix said.
Officers left the scene, only to return at around 3 a.m. after an anonymous caller reported there was possible illegal activity going on in Apartment 11-G at Hutto-McIver.
“We got consent to search the apartment, and found three men hiding upstairs, two of whom were wanted by other police agencies,” Nix said.
Tchaikovsky Williams, 446 W. Green St., Bainbridge, was wanted on a parole violation warrant out of Texas, according to Bainbridge Public Safety.
Another occupant, Allen Calloway, of Blakely, was wanted by Early County law enforcement on multiple charges, according to Nix.
A further search of the apartment uncovered a quantity of MDMA, also known as “Molly,” as well as digital scales. BPS officers also found a stolen Glock handgun.
Here is a summary of the charges each of the three men now faces:
- Brandon Lamar Sasser, 25, 701 Helen St., Bainbridge, possession of firearm or knife during the commission of a crime or criminal attempt, theft by receiving stolen property (felony); C. Avery, BPS;
- Tchaikovsky Williams, 446 W. Green St., Bainbridge, parole violation, BPS;
- Allen Calloway, 19309 E. South Boulevard, Blakely, Ga., possession of controlled substance (MDMA), possession of controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a housing project, giving false name or information to police, BPS.
