RIVERS RADIO GROUP Urban AC WGOV-A/VALDOSTA, GA personality STEPHON EDGERTON, who used the on-air name "JUAN GATTI," was shot and killed leaving the radio station early SATURDAY (1/21) morning. WCTV-TV reports, "EDGERTON had been working at the station on highway 84 in VALDOSTA. He was leaving the building when a masked man waiting for him in the parking lot shot him."
"That kind of stuff, basically it doesn't happen out in this area, it's kind of quiet out here you know? So it's kind of shocking to hear that happen right down the road," KEITH HUNTER, who was leaving a church located about two miles away from WGOV, told WCTV.
EDGERTON had been able to call 911 and describe that the man was wearing a mask before passing away at SOUTH GEORGIA MEDICAL CENTER.
