Non-interest income, money derived from fees and other charges, also fell. It declined 21 percent to $14 million during the first quarter from $17.8 million during the same quarter last year.

Shares of Capital City Bank tumbled $1.85, or 12.3 percent, to $13.12 in afternoon trading as the financial sector and broader market both declined as well.
