May 15--  Vidalia police have identified the two men wounded in a shooting last Thursday at the Econo Inn in Vidalia.

According to a police report, 21-year-old Michael Anthony Edwards of Macon suffered the most serious wounds and 25-year-old Justin Lyle Kersey of 214 Davis Road in Vidalia suffered two gunshot wounds.  Both were flown to Memorial Health in Savannah where Edwards was admitted and Kersey was treated and released.

The next day police arrested 19-year-old Aldarreis Emmanuel Tillery of 711 West Street in Vidalia on two counts of aggravated assault.

The case remains under investigation and no motive for the shooting has been disclosed, however, the report said Kersey told police he thought Tillery was the same man who had robbed him earlier on Thursday.
