CAIRO, Ga. (WCTV) – The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is looking into a video circulating on social media, showing a group of people firing guns into the air in Cairo on New Year’s Eve.

The GBI says the Grady County Sheriff’s Office reached out, asking the agency for the investigation, which is in its early stages.

The sheriff made the request after learning of the video, described by an investigator as “a lot of people shooting a lot of guns into the air.”

Investigators say the incident happened within Cairo city limits on the night of New Year’s Eve.  They are trying to track down witnesses and those involved, and determine the exact time it happened.

WCTV has reached out to a GBI spokesperson for more details on the investigation. We have also reached out to the Grady County sheriff for comment.  We have yet to hear back.
