Meadows was pronounced dead of gunshot wounds at 11 a.m., said Muscogee County Coroner Buddy Bryan. He said it appears Meadows had been dead since about 4 p.m. Saturday. The garage doors were open.
After two days of investigating, police said they have zeroed in on a late-model Kia Soul. That vehicle was observed driving down Alta Vista Drive when the shots were fired, said Columbus police Lt. Greg Touchberry.
People in the vicinity of Alta Vista reported to officers that they heard shots going through the tree line behind their houses, he said.
