Bond set at $1 million in shooting of GSC student

Judge Tommy Wilson granted a $1 million bond April 6 for a man charged with multiple counts in connection with the shooting death of a Gordon State College student Dec. 13, 2016. Frederick S. Harden, 24, is charged with involuntary manslaughter, theft by receiving stolen property, possession of marijuana and tampering with evidence. Harden was in a trailer at 121 North St. in Barnesville with Jessey Gadzetti and two other men when he allegedly pulled a Taurus 9 mm. pistol and was waving it about when it went off. Gadzetti, who worked as a short order cook on the GSC campus, was hit once in the forehead above his left eye. He died at the scene. The pistol had been stolen earlier in Thomaston. Harden allegedly tried to hide it after the shooting. He was also in possession of four ounces of marijuana at the time of his arrest. At the time of the shooting, Harden was out on bond on charges of selling marijuana and cocaine. At a preliminary hearing, chief magistrate Karen Jackson said Harden’s long criminal history was a concern to the court.
