Law enforcement is searching for a man accused of fatally shooting four people in Hampton, Georgia, Saturday morning, according to authorities.

The Henry County Sheriff’s Office identified the suspect as 40-year-old Andre Longmore. Authorities believe the suspect is driving a 2017 black GMC Acadia with license plates DHF 756, which is not his own vehicle.

The first call about the shooting came in around 10:45 a.m. ET, Hampton police Chief James Turner said at a Saturday afternoon news conference.

The incident happened in an area close to the Dogwood Lakes subdivision in Hampton – about 29 miles south of Atlanta – an area that features lake-front homes and a nearby baptist church.

Turner said the victims were all adults, three men and one woman. He added authorities were not releasing the names of the victims to allow the families to be notified.

Since the shooting, “all hands have been on deck,” Turner said.

Henry County Sheriff Reginald Scandrett said an arrest warrant has been issued for Longmore on murder charges.

Addressing the suspect, he said, “We will hunt you down in any hole you may be residing in and bring you to custody.”

He added the sheriff’s office is offering a $10,000 reward for any information leading to Longmore’s arrest. “The suspect is known to be armed and dangerous,” Scandrett said.

The sheriff’s office is working with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation as well as police departments across the Atlanta metro area to track down the suspect, according to Scandrett.

Turner said investigators “do not have a motive at this time” for the killings. There are at least “four crime scenes that we’re actively investigating,” he said. He added that police do not believe Longmore is related to the victims but authorities are “still investigating.”

At the news conference, Hampton Mayor Ann Tarpley said “today is a sad and somber occasion” and vowed the person responsible would be held responsible and “brought to justice.”

“We ask that you lift up the families and the victims in your prayers, your thoughts, and that you give them the privacy that they may need to overcome this horrific tragedy,” she went on. “We have full confidence in our law enforcement that they will perform their duties and bring the suspect to justice.”

Officials advised the public to avoid the area near the incident.

The shooting is one of at least 382 mass shootings in the United States in 2023, according to the Gun Violence Archive. The archive, like CNN, defines a mass shooting as one that injured or killed four or more people, not including the shooter

Andre Longmore Dead Following Police Shootout

Andre Longmore, the man accused of fatally shooting four people in Hampton, Georgia, Saturday morning, was killed in a shootout with police, according to Henry County Sheriff Reginald Scandrett.

During a Sunday news conference, Scandrett announced authorities tracked the suspect and confronted him.

“The suspect returned fire and hit the ground running,” the sheriff said, adding authorities chased him down and “he produced a handgun again.”

Authorities then engaged in another gun fight with Longmore, leaving him dead and two officers injured, Scandrett said. One of the officers is severely injured and was life-flighted to a hospital.

“He was hit in the rear of his back,” the sheriff said. “He is conscious, breathing and talking.”

The sheriff called it an “absolute honor” to serve with those officers and said those in the community “can breathe a little bit easier, sleep a little better tonight. This monster is off of our streets.”

Longmore is accused of fatally shooting four people, sparking a manhunt across Atlanta as police departments across the metro region worked to track him down.

The mass shooting was reported around 10:45 a.m. ET Saturday, Hampton police chief James Turner said at a Saturday afternoon news conference.

The incident happened in an area close to the Dogwood Lakes subdivision in Hampton – about 29 miles south of Atlanta – an area that features lake-front homes and a nearby baptist church.

Police identified the victims Sunday as three men and one woman who were all in their sixties: Scott Leavitt, 67; his wife, Shirley Leavitt, 66; Steve Blizzard, 65; and Ronald Jeffers, 66. Turner said all four lived in the subdivision.

Authorities said that suspect, who also lived in the Dogwood Lakes community, stole the vehicle of one of the victims, Blizzard.

Authorities were offering a $10,000 reward for any information leading to Longmore’s arrest. “The suspect is known to be armed and dangerous,” Scandrett said Saturday, vowing to “hunt” Longmore down.

Police on Saturday said a motive wasn’t clear and said they didn’t believe Longmore was related to any of the victims.

On Saturday, Hampton Mayor Ann Tarpley said “today is a sad and somber occasion” and vowed the person responsible would be held responsible and “brought to justice.”

“We ask that you lift up the families and the victims in your prayers, your thoughts, and that you give them the privacy that they may need to overcome this horrific tragedy,” she went on.

The shooting is one of at least 387 mass shootings in the United States in 2023, according to the Gun Violence Archive. The archive, like CNN, defines a mass shooting as one that injured or killed four or more people, not including the shooter.
