A victim died from multiple gunshot wounds at the Grove Apartments Thursday night.

The murder may have been a “drug transaction gone bad,” the Statesboro Police Department (SPD) said in a Friday press release.

The SPD responded to a call at the apartment complex on Brampton Avenue at approximately 10:52 p.m. Officers administered first aid on the victim until medical personnel arrived, according to the press release.

The coroner later arrived on the scene and announced the victim deceased, according to the press release.

The investigation was turned over to detectives from the SPD’s Criminal Investigations Bureau.
