VIDALIA, Ga. (WSAV) – Police have identified one of three men wanted in connection with a shooting that injured multiple people in a typically quiet Vidalia neighborhood Saturday. One of the victims is just 10 years old.
On Monday, the Vidalia Police Department released a photo of Tykeavius Walker, 20, wanted for multiple counts of aggravated assault, aggravated battery and cruelty to children.
Walker should be considered armed and dangerous.
He is described as a black male, about 5’9” and 148 lbs. with black hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information on Walker is urged to call Vidalia Police at 912-537-4123, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Eastman Office at 478-374-6988 or CrimeStoppers anonymously at 912-386-4480.
According to the Vidalia Police Department, officers responded around 8:45 p.m. to a report that three people had been shot inside a vehicle on Wiggins Street. The driver, who had been shot, drove himself and other victims to Meadows Regional Medical Center.
Inside of the car was 43-year-old Creg Page, 34-year-old Rosanna Simpson, and two children, ages two and 10.
Page and the 10-year-old child both suffered gunshot wounds. Simpson was also shot multiple times.
A short time later, police say a fourth victim involved arrived at the hospital. Terrence White, 45, was in a separate car at the time and was also shot.
All three adult victims were treated and released. The 10-year-old victim was airlifted to Memorial Hospital in Savannah in serious condition. His current condition is unknown at this time.
Investigators say they are looking for a dark-colored SUV, possibly a Chevrolet Tahoe, in relation to the shooting.
The car should have damage to the front, passenger side fender area, scratches on the sides and aftermarket custom rims. Three rims are the same, and one is a different style. The front windows are not tinted, but the back windows are.
Authorities say the car had three black men in it at the time of the shooting.
Vidalia Police say the incident remains under investigation and additional charges are anticipated.
