Police are looking for the person who shot and killed a man in Valdosta.

"They didn't have to kill him like that," said one of George Quezergue's friends.

Valdosta Police said around 9 o'clock Saturday night George Quezergue was gunned down in the alley of a shopping center. Officers say they responded to this shopping center in reference to gun shots being fired.

"Whatever happened last night it didn't have to go down like that," said Quezergue's friend.

For hours, friends and family hovered over the bloody scene where Quezergue's dead body was found with multiple gun shots.

"It's just devastating to the city right now," said Tay McKeithen.

Tay McKeithen said she's known Quezergue for more than ten years and said she doesn't know why someone would want to kill her friend.

"That's the question everybody's asking why, what happened George was the type if you knew him if you wanted something and he had it he'll give it to you," said McKeithen.

Convenience store owners said they saw the victim walking and talking on the phone just ten minutes before he was gunned down

Though no arrest have been made officers said they have a person of interest with the help of another law enforcement agency.
