Two men charged with murder in Meriwether County shooting

The Meriwether County Sheriff's Office and Georgia Bureau of Investigation Crime Scene Unit are investigating a Saturday morning shooting that killed one person and injured another, according to a release.

Officials identified the deceased as John Joseph Lamey, 45, of California. He was pronounced dead of an apparent gunshot wound at the scene by Meriwether County Coroner Johnny Worley, the release states.

The surviving victim is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, according to the release.

Around 10 a.m. Saturday, Meriwether County Sheriff’s patrol deputies responded to the 100 block of Allie Road in Greenville, Ga. in reference to a shooting victim.

"Upon our deputies' arrival on the scene, they located a subject behind a residence that was deceased due to an apparent gunshot wound," Sheriff Chuck Smith said in the release. "They also located another subject that had been shot at the location who was still conscious and alert."

Deputies gathered a vehicle description and suspect information from the scene and other available resources that led them to identify 19-year-old Xavier Rashad Slaton of Gay, Ga. as their first suspect, Smith said. Officials obtained warrants for his arrest.

"We began to actively pursue Slaton in our attempt to get him in custody," the sheriff said.

Over the course of the investigation, officials identified 21-year-old Kanorris Shakeno Martin of Fayetteville, Ga. as the second suspect in the case. Officials then obtained warrants for his arrest.


The Meriwether County Sheriff’s Office has released composite sketches of two men identified as persons of interest in the recent shooting that killed one man and injured his son.

The shooting occurred on Dec. 19 in the 100 Block of Allie Road in Greenville. The victim, John Joseph Lamey, was found behind the residence – dead from an apparent gunshot wound. His son was also shot, but sustained non-life threatening injuries.

John and Dyanne Lamey. The family was anticipating one of their largest gatherings for Christmas before the shooting death of John rocked the Lamey family and community. “He had a lot of friends and loved ones,” said his daughter, Aleyx Lamey.
