MOULTRIE, Ga. — Residents of a south Georgia town are split on the decision to revoke a restaurant’s alcohol license after a deadly shooting. Some residents say the move came too late after earlier incidents, The Moultrie Observer reports, while some say the city didn’t give the restaurant owner a chance to defend her record. Three people were hit by gunfire Jan. 10, with 25-year-old Rhoderick Moore dying. A fourth person was hit by a car as people fled through a parking lot. City Manager Pete Dillard on Jan. 11 revoked the alcohol license of owner Marquesa Thomas. The restaurant is still open; it just can’t serve alcohol. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is leading the inquiry, but has made no arrests.
