Suspect Charged in Fatal Waynesboro Shooting

Waynesboro police have arrested a suspect in a double murder that occurred Friday night.

Officials said 26-year-old Joseph Moss, of Waynesboro, was charged early Sunday for the shooting that killed Fredrick Lenard Hammock, 29, of Shuqualak, and 19-year-old Tyrone Clemons, of DeKalb.

It happened in the parking lot of the Waynesboro Place Apartments.

Moss was awaiting an initial court appearance Monday.

Chief James Bunch says officers and investigators worked long hours over the weekend to resolve the case, interviewing witnesses and documenting the physical evidence.

Waynesboro police plan to present the case to the grand jury in June.
