"I usually go this way but they used an ambulance to block the road.," says Tifton Resident Jeff Roach.

The road Jeff Roach is referencing to is Jack Bankston Road where Tift County Deputies responded to this home at around 7:30 Friday morning in regards a shooting.

"I didn't realize that had happened," says Roach.

Though deputies won't say who shot who, they are saying the two involved had a former romantic relationship. Deputies say 36-year-old Darby Hall was rushed to Tift Regional Medical Center with multiple gunshot wounds while 31-year-old Kyle Larson had a single gun shot wound.

Just last Saturday (5/7) another South Georgia community, Iron City, was shaken by a another domestic violence incident that turned deadly. Seminole County Deputies say it claimed the lives of three people. Deputies say Larry Easterwood blocked the vehicle in which his ex girl-friend and a couple were riding... and started shooting into the vehicle right in front of a local convenience store.

"I say that I personally wouldn't put up with it but I guess if you're in that situation things change," says South Georgia Resident Jennifer Hill.

Reports of two domestic shootings in the same region less than 6 days apart are leaving two communities troubled.
