    TIFTON, Ga. — Five men were killed and four other people were critically wounded in a series of attacks at trailer parks in and around the city early Friday, authorities said.

    It was not immediately clear how the victims were killed or why, said Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokesman John Bankhead.

    The attacks appeared to be home invasions, authorities said. Three took place in Tift County, and a fourth in neighboring Colquitt County.

    "We think they're tied together," said Colquitt County Sheriff's Capt. Hal Suber.

    Five men are dead and at least six others wounded in a series of attacks around the southern Georgia town of Tifton.

    Authorities said the attacks appear to be part of a string of robberies targeting Hispanic immigrants at trailer parks. They said some victims were beaten with baseball bats, but at least one was shot.

    Police are looking for two people who might have been involved in committing the crimes, and they believe the attacks are connected.

    A man who said his uncle and cousin were killed in their trailer said the four dead are all immigrants from Mexico, and all but one belonged to the same family.

    The slayings of five Mexican immigrants and wounding of six others during a string of mobile home robberies early Friday has terrified Hispanics who come to this rural south Georgia community to work in the fields of cotton and peanut farms.

    Investigators suspect at least two men committed the attacks at four mobile home parks — three in Tift County and one in neighboring Colquitt County — and targeted Hispanics not out of hatred, but because they're easy prey.
