Adel man slain in Nashville

Tifton man injured

NASHVILLE — An Adel man was killed and a Tifton man wounded in an early-morning shooting Saturday in Nashville, according to police.

Early Saturday, officers of the Nashville Police Department responded to a report of gunfire at the Blue Flame nightclub near the intersection of Marion Avenue and North Mathis Street, according to a press release from Capt. Chuck Edwards, assistant chief of the Nashville Police Department.

At about 1:30 a.m., police officers and EMS personnel arrived at the scene and found two men outside the nightclub with gunshot wounds; both were taken to the Berrien County Hospital. One of the men, Roland Jerry Bryant III, 22, of Adel was later pronounced dead at the hospital, say police. The second man, Mealo Alford, 24, of Tifton was later taken to the South Georgia Medical Center where he was in guarded condition Saturday, according to the press release.

While the body of Bryant has been taken to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Crime Lab in Atlanta for autopsy, details of the shootings remain sketchy. A joint investigation by Nashville police, the Berrien County Sheriff’s Office and the GBI continues. Witnesses or anyone with any information that may help with this case are asked to call the Nashville Police Department at 229-686-6558 or 686-7666.
