PORT WENTWORTH Ga. WTOC Desimond Butler is in custody now and charged with the murder of 24 year old Dion Farmer outside this Rice Creek subdivision clubhouse in Port Wentworth.The doorbell video from a home in the area appears to capture the moments the gunfire rang out.
It is shocking to hear this news. I can only imagine what the young mans mother is going through right now Gabrielle Nelson Port Wentworth District 1 Councilwoman said.Port Wentworth Councilwoman Gabrielle Nelson represents and lives in the Rice Creek neighborhood.It is definitely something that makes you cringe.Police say they were called to the clubhouse just before midnight Friday night.Butler was eventually captured without incident early the next evening. i am told that the suspect is a resident of this particular neighborhood. I am told that the victim is a resident of another district 1 neighborhood Nelson said.
The councilwoman is praising Port Wentworths police for quickly acting on the shooting but says the murder just feet from homes and a community pool is disturbing.While I hate that this transpired am grateful that our families have that much confidence in the City of Port Wentworth Police Department knowing that they can come right back out here and that it was an isolated incident.And while she understands only certain details can be released during. investigations she says more should have been done to notify neighbors.I agree with many many of our neighbors out here that something should have been said sooner but we have got them, we got them off the streets and now the focus for me is that family that has definitely lost a son.
