The Tifton Police Department says that the Waffle House on the 700 block of 7th Street was ransacked by an armed robber who demanded cash early Saturday morning in the predawn hours.

The deceased victim’s name has not yet been released and law enforcement officials have confirmed they made an arrest around the same time of the night but did not say whether it was related to the shooting.
