The Progress has received a couple of calls this morning concerning a possible shooting here. A call from us to the sheriff revealed they had a few calls as well that are apparently the result of a mix up with geography. A shooting did occur in Jasper County (South Georgia).
The calls at the Progress indicated the rumored event was to have taken place in west Pickens, but that too was incorrect.
Sheriff Donnie Craig confirmed that they are not investigating any shooting or murder in Pickens County in recent months. Craig said, “Thankfully it wasn’t here.”
