Family and friends are raising money for the family of a Ball Ground man who was shot and killed in a Jasper shooting earlier this month.
Damon Jamie Williams, 42, of Ball Ground died June 11 after he was shot at a Home Depot in Jasper, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Another man, Jeffery Scott Carden 49, of White, was injured. Details about the shooting are still under investigation, though it “appears to be an isolated incident,” GBI spokesperson Nelly Miles said.
Williams’ funeral was Sunday, according to his obituary. He is survived by his wife and a 15-year-old son, among other family members, according to an online fundraiser established by one of his wife’s colleagues.
“Facing life without her husband’s support on every level, not having to worry about immediate expenses will hopefully allow Donna to concentrate on handling the many details that will need to be completed in these early days as she also tries to comfort and support her son, and others so devastated by Damon’s passing,” Cindy Chapman wrote on the GoFundMe page for the family.
Wednesday, the page had raised $10,771 of a $25,000 goal. To donate, visit gofund.me/7e42d65b.
