Rome Police continue to investigate a shooting incident occurring during the early morning hours of Sunday that left one man dead and three others injured.
According to police reports several calls reporting gunfire first started coming into 9-1-1 at approximately 4:20am and when officers arrived they found 35 year-old Tamaine Deshaun McKnight, of a Grover Street address, dead of multiple gunshot wounds in the old Sun Trust bank parking lot at 510 Calhoun Avenue. There were two semi-automatic pistols lying on the ground by McKnight’s body and police found an unspecified number of shell casings on the scene.
One of the officers responding to the call noticed a silver Jeep speeding into Floyd Medical Center. It was soon determined two men in the Jeep had been shot at the site. 38 year old Evanda Spivey of a Beverly Drive address and Sammy Riles, 33 of Columbus, both sustained leg wounds. They told police that they were running away when they were shot. Both were treated and released.
Another subject, 29 year old Ladory Robinson, of Burnett Street in Rome, was shot multiple times and remains hospitalized.
Investigators collected evidence at the parking lot and interviewed witnesses. At this time, no arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
Anyone with information should contact Investigator Tony Yarbrough at (706) 238-5124.
