GBI names shooter, probe continuing

Law enforcement officials say autopsy results give a more clear idea of who was the gunman in a triple shooting death in Cairo earlier this month.
The autopsy indicates Jacinto Olguin, 38, was the man who used a handgun to shoot his two friends and then turned the gun on himself, the evening of Saturday, Feb. 16.
Olguin was shot once in the right temple, according to Steve Turner, special agent in charge with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
The victims, Aliro Ramirez, 39, and Jose Reyes Beltran, 57, had been watching TV with Olguin when the violence broke out, apparently out of the blue, Turner says.
There were no signs of a struggle in the family room of 1019 Eighth Ave., N.E., where Ramirez and Beltran lived with two other roommates.
Turner also revealed this week that there were two male witnesses to the shootings.
Turner said Ramirez was shot below his right eye and Beltran was shot on the left side of his neck.
The gun used in the shooting was recovered at the scene.
A funeral service for the alleged shooter was held Monday at Hispanic Community Church on U.S. Hwy. 84 East.
