Police said Gamble went on a shooting rampage in the small Rockmart neighborhood Thursday night

“All I heard was gunshots,” said neighbor Shirley Ware.  Ware said all four victims are related and they’re also related to Gamble. But no one seems to know why the shooting happened.

Fernandes did some research on Gamble and found a Cartersville address where he may have lived before. No one at the address recognized the photo of Gamble that GBI officials released Friday.  Investigators said Gamble is to be considered armed and dangerous.
