Cordele Police have arrested three people in connection with a shooting incident on Tuesday that sent a 13-year-old Cordele boy to Crisp Regional Hospital.

The boy is in stable condition, however. He was shot during an incident at the 300 block of W. 14th Ave. at around 2:45 p.m. Tuesday. A police spokesperson said the shooting stemmed from a dispute that started the previous night.

Arrested in the case were 27-year-old Joshua Brooks and 17-year-old Keemon Daniels, who will be charged as an adult, on charges of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. A third man, named Chris Smith, was arrested Thursday on an aggravated assault charge in relation to the case.

Cordele Police Department investigators are also busy working a second shooting case that occurred on Tuesday less than two hours after the incident on W. 14th Ave.

The second shooting happened at around 4:09 p.m. Tuesday at the 600 block of W. 23rd Ave. and left 26-year-old male Terribe Smith injured. Smith was in stable condition at Navicent Macon Medical Center, according to a police press release issued Wednesday.

According to the release, “due to conflicting information, no suspect information is being released.” The release stressed that community cooperation is crucial for investigators to wrap up both shooting cases.
