Rossville Man Shot While Standing in His Home Window

Rossville, GA (WDEF) – A 29-year-old Rossville man was shot and killed while standing in front of a window inside his home Monday afternoon. It happened at a home in the 400 block of East Peachtree Street.

The Walker County Sheriff’s Office says witnesses told them a red pickup truck and a dark-colored Dodge Charger or Challenger, drove into the victim’s driveway. Moments later, witnesses heard gunshots.

Sheriff Steve Wilson said he does not believe this was a simple drive-by shooting.

“You know, some people may characterize this as a drive by shooting we we don’t believe that that’s the case here even though it does sound sounds similar when you put the facts together. But it is uncommon in Walker County to have these types of shootings. We pride ourselves on being in a bedroom community, a safe community.”

The victim was identified as Dakota Bradshaw. His body has been taken to the G-B-I Crime Lab for an autopsy.
