Chatham County Police have located a second victim who was injured during a shooting incident that left one man dead last night.

"Police were called to the 2500 block of Ft. Argyle road on a report of a shooting just after 10:30 p.m. on Monday, June 10, 2019. When they arrived, they found one man dead from an apparent gunshot wound lying behind the Country Convenience Store," police report.

A man who was with the victim says "the two were confronted by two other men, and after a brief altercation, the two suspects began firing at the victim and the witness." The witness was not injured.

Approximately four hours after the initial call, Chatham County Police detectives located a second gunshot victim inside a residence. He was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Detectives are not releasing the names of the victims at this time.

Police do not believe the shooting incident was random.



"Last night, K-9 units from the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office and Effingham County Sheriff’s Office, and Georgia State Patrol were called out to assist in the search for the suspects. They were unable to track the suspects, and detectives do not currently have a complete description of the suspects," police say.
