Police: Owner, wife, grandson shot dead in robbery at Coweta gun range

Three family members were killed during a robbery at a Grantville gun range Friday, and investigators from multiple agencies worked late into the night scene searching for answers at the grim crime.

Robbers shot and killed the owner of the Lock Stock & Barrel Shooting range along with his wife and grandson, according to Grantville police.

Coweta County property records show the gun range, at 514 Bohannon Road, was owned by two Sharpsburg men named Tommy Hawk and Thomas Richard Hawk Jr.

Police indicated about 40 weapons and a camera DVR were stolen during the robbery, which occurred between 5:30 and 6 p.m. as the range was preparing to close Friday.

Anyone who drove past the gun range during that time and saw any vehicles parked outside other than a white Ford dually truck or a black Ford Expedition are urged to contact the police department at 770-583-2266.

Very sad for the family.  Here is another LINKY

The only additional info than in the opening post is:

This is one of the worst murders I have heard of in a long time. Prayers to the family and hopefully justice to the victims.

Tommy was a good man, he'd give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He was thinking about selling his shop and retiring. Every time I saw him he asked me if I was ready to buy it. I asked if he was ready to finance it for me.

Damn the fuckers that did this. No punishment will be enough for them

Did they ever catch the gang that used a truck to break into Gable sporting goods store in Douglasville in 2020?

The robberies are so bold and dangerous getting worse.

This is sickening and makes me furious. They will catch the creeps but there will never be enough justice.

The updated news states the thugs stole the surveillance system, probably the on site dvr.

For anyone considering additional surveillance a ring system is inexpensive, very easy to use, and the video is stored in the cloud.

ADT is also a solid choice. A little more costly then ring. But it also stores video in a cloud. I get videos text to my phone.
Arlo is a good one too. FMJ in Lagrange had another attempt break in. Arlo picked up movement. Sent a text to owner n he called 911 while he watched them on camera. N deputies caught them nextdoor getting into get away car.

I saw it right when it was announced, they hadn't posted a pic yet.

Put him in a room and let family members have at him with pliers and blowtorches.

Did he act alone?  Motives?  So sick that people will do these things.

I pray for the family.

I read somewhere yesterday that they had trimmed down the number of firearms from 40 to about a dozen.

Also, the article said he had been to the range enough that some folks remembered him.  He had purchased at least one firearm in the past from the shop.

I'd tie him down, paint his belly and bits with peanut butter and let about a hundred starving rats loose on him.

If he does he will be the first person in the coweta judicial circuit to get it in probably the last 20-30 years at least.
Always an excuse as to why they didn’t seek the death penalty.

I heard on WSB that they expected more arrests. Maybe he wasn't alone.

Death penalty cases are rare now.  The average cost is north of $400k.  Some rural counties would have to raise the tax rate to recover the cost.  The legislature compensated for this in 1993 when they provided judges the sentencing option of true Life Without Possibility of Parole

If the DA doesn’t seek the death penalty, vote his ass out. Of course the family should have a say in it, and this case screams put the parasite down.

Of course he can be voted out, but while the family gets a say - they don't get the only say.
