The Thomas County Sheriff's Office says three men were arrested following a drive-by shooting at an apartment complex on the corner of Horn and Barnes streets at about six o'clock last night in Boston, Georgia. (1/30)

Witnesses say Quintaveni McIntyre, and cousins Artavias Wyche, and Kendrick Wyche drove by and opened fire from a car before speeding off.

Tamara Samuel is a resident in the complex whose apartment faces the street where the shooting happened.

She says she's thankful she and her children were visiting a relative when the incident happened, but now she's worried for the safety of her children.

TCSO says all three men are charged with aggravated assault.

Investigators say they are working to establish a motive for the incident.

    We lived in Boston for over a decade. After the Police chief, Al Suarez was killed in his own Police Station the place went to hell in a hand basket! We could not wait to leave. The place is turning into a real little Chicago-drugs, prostitution, all kinds of crime. Businesses have closed and the local government should be investigated by the FBI!

    I have been through Boston many times. I can't believe that happened there. As far as this situation goes, I guess idiots will do what idiots do best!
