Warner Robins police are investigating a homicide at the Chevron gas station on Elberta Road.

According to Assistant Police Chief, John Wagner, it happened just down the street from the scene of a deadly shooting at the Tanglewood Apartments which happened earlier Saturday evening.

Wagner says one male cashier was shot at the Chevron station.

At this time Wagner does not know if the shootings are related. But he says they are "suspicious" based on the close proximity of the two locations.
