Four Alleged Gang Members Indicted For Fatal Shooting In Georgia

On Monday, Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr announced that four individuals had been indicted for their alleged involvement in a fatal shooting that occurred in Athens on March 5, 2023. All four of the individuals are allegedly members of Everybody Killa (EBK), a hybrid street gang.

“This violence must stop before more lives are lost and more families are destroyed,” said Carr. “By leveraging our resources across all levels of law enforcement, we are able to more effectively dismantle the growing gang networks that are terrorizing our communities. We have partnered with the Athens-Clarke County Police Department and the GBI since day one, and we will continue working together to protect all of our fellow Georgians.”

This case was investigated by the Athens-Clarke County Police Department and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s (GBI) Gang Task Force with help from the Attorney General’s Gang Prosecution Unit.
