Suspect arrested in Griffin shooting, hit-and-run investigation

Police in Griffin, Georgia have arrested a suspect in connection to a shooting and car accident Saturday.

After speaking to multiple witnesses and suspects, police identified and arrested a suspect, 32-year-old McDonough resident Bobby Butler.
