Multiple people shot in Glynn County, investigators ask for information

All of the victims survived the shooting and are between the ages of 18-21.

GLYNN COUNTY, Ga. — Multiple people were shot in Glynn County, Georgia early on Friday morning, according to law enforcement. All of the victims are between the ages of 18-21. 

Around 12:49 a.m., the Glynn County Police Department responded to the area of Wasp Drive located in the Fairway Oaks neighborhood in reference to a shooting. Officers determined five people in total had been shot at a party held after a local high school graduation.

One man was found on scene who had been shot. Investigators then determined that four other shooting victims, three men and one woman, were taken separately to the hospital for treatment, according to GCPD. 

"We heard a lot of gunshots and a lot of people running around the yards and stuff," said Demetrisis Williams, who lives near the shooting scene.

Williams says Wasp Drive, the road he lives on, was packed Thursday night, with loads of people heading to the graduation party.

That party ended tragically, as multiple gun shots rang out.

All the commotion woke Williams up in the middle of the night, so he stepped outside his house only to find someone lying in his yard with a gunshot wound.

"I was just hoping my aunt was ok and my uncle was alright," said Williams. "I was just hoping it wasn't anyone in the family. I didn't want it to be anybody at all, of course, but it was still nerve-wracking."

The Glynn County Police Department reports that all five victims survived the shooting, only one is still in the hospital.

Assistant Chief O'Neal Jackson says the police department thinks everyone involved in the shooting was at the party, but they haven't made any arrests yet or released any suspect descriptions.

"Any type of violent act like this that occurs that's unprovoked is unsettling, but we're doing everything we can to investigate the matter and bring those individuals to account for what occurred there," said Jackson.

Jackson is asking anyone with video, pictures or information to reach out - they can do it anonymously - so the department can start piecing it together.

Williams says it's the second shooting on Wasp Drive in the past few weeks, leaving him a little on edge when he comes home from work every night.

"It could be anyone who get shot, man," said Williams. "A bullet could have anybody's name on it, so it just makes you weary of your surroundings."

If you have any information about the shooting, please call GCPD at (912) 554-7802 or Silent Witness at (912)-264-1333.

This is an active investigation.
