4th suspect arrested in fatal Thomson shooting

THOMSON, GA (WFXG) -

A 24-year-old man is facing a charge in the shooting death of his brother in Thomson on Feb. 7, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

Demontre Bray is charged with murder in the death of 21-year-old Exzavius Bray, according to the GBI. Three other people were arrested earlier and are also facing murder charges in the fatal shooting: Tywaun Burley, 24, Stephen Howard, 25, and Stanquan Rogers, 28.

Deputies responded to a shots fired call in the 100 block of Cherokee Street around 2:48 a.m. on Feb. 7. When they got there, they found that two people had been shot. Exzavius Bray was taken to University McDuffie Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

Demontre Bray also was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center to be treated for his injuries.

Exzavius Bray's body was taken to the GBI Crime Lab in Decatur on Feb. 9, where an autopsy was performed. The cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds.

Neighbors said they are concerned about crime in their community.

"I'm just hoping that they could do something about it so It won't happen anymore," said Johnnie Mae Ballard.

Ballard said she heard more than seven shots, and that's when she knew something bad was happening.

"Later on I heard the people running all through my yard," Ballard said. "I peeped out the window and I was going to get up and call the police, but when I got ready to call the police and looked out there and saw that the police was already out there."

"They had a shootout one time before, but no one had gotten killed, it was just that somebody had gotten shot," Ballard said.

Although this may not be the first time something like this has happened, it is still something that no one wants to witness.

"They have grandchildren over there at that house, and my grandchildren be over here sometimes," Ballard said. "And it's just bad to be shooting like that, because with a bullet, you just never know what can happen."

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information concerning this case is asked to call the McDuffie County Sheriff's Office at 706-595-2145 or the GBI at 706-595-2575.
