A south Georgia party turned violent after two men were shot with the same bullet.

Thomas County investigators say the mood went from festive to fearful at an Ochlocknee, Georgia get-together.

They say around one o'clock this morning, two women got into a fight at the April Street home where a party was being held.

Deputies say the homeowner pulled out a gun -- and guest Montavia Williams allegedly picked it up and fired.

They say she managed to shoot two men with one bullet.

Says Capt. Steve Jones of the Thomas County Sheriff's Office, "We do know that one shot was fired and it passed through Isaac Bardon, and struck [Keith] Davis in the chest. [Keith] Davis died at the scene because of the injury."

Investigators say the bullet hit 17-year-old Isaac Burdon through his left shoulder. They say the bullet then exited through his neck and hit 38-year-old Keith Davis in the chest.

Davis died on scene and Burdon remains at Archbold Memorial Hospital in 'stable' condition.

The Sheriff's Office says while the event is a tragedy, incidents like this one aren't the norm.

"We don't have a lot of shootings like this -- we're really fortunate in this area. But any -- one -- are too many.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is working with TCSO to investigate the case further.

They say people were drinking at the party.

    When is Ochlocknee going to get a police officer? I mean really? I guess the mayor thinks its ok to spend money putting a track in Ochlocknee and fixing the sidewalks before he gets a police officer! He probably doesnt care being that he doesnt live close to where all the drug deals and fighting and shootings are taking place. If he signed up to be a mayor then he should be a MAN and grow up and take on the responsibility of watching over this town. When it comes to a "Security Guard" carrying a flashlight and a thug carrying a gun...the thug is going to win hands down every time. Lets raise h**l until they get us a police officer!!

    i think that the homeowner(shalonda freeman) should be charged as well asher nephew( isaac burdon)because they were beating the shooter.If the homeowner had not pulled the gun out this may have not happen.She is also at fault for the death because she took matters in her own hands instead of calling 911.it could have been more than one dead or injured.the homeowner is showing no sympathy at all.does she have a heart?

    To all who spoke negatively of Ochlocknee...these bad situations could and HAVE happened in nearly all of the small towns and communities throughout Thomas Co. No place is immune to these wrongdoings.Some of my fondest childhood memories are entwined w/our town and the people in it...black and white. Everyone should thank he good Lord it wasn't their sons and daughter that this happened to, and if you believe in what's right, pray for the people that was their sons and daughter. Calling all good people...........Amen?

    I been living here for 7 years and there hasn't been anything like this before. Since three trailers has been moved down by the dead end of the street, it has been really noisy and the residents here has been calling the police/TCSO and there has been nothing done. We didn't have the loud music, speeding down the street while children are playing, and disrespecting the neighborhoods. This has got to stop now! We the residents have to start a pretition and show up at these council meetings. We need to make our neighborhoods safe again!

    She was trying to get out of that mess what was going on it was too many people trying to fight those three girls and the girl who threw the party she should not have brought the gun out in the first place and then none of this wouldnt have went on. She should be in jail as well because it wasnt montavia gun. the girl got hit and the gun fell and she saw the gun and picked it up and shot one time. People shouldnt judge people if they didnt know the story. Free Montavia, it was self defense.

    Hee hee hee! Three for the price of one! Crazy girl going to prison, party hound #1 gonna be scarred for life with a messed up shoulder, and party hound #2 met his maker and had his day of judgement! Boom! 1, 2, 3. Yes,this could have been prevented. They could have stayed home.

    It's not just this shooting that has gotten so many people upset but this is just another decline in a once safe city. The Meigs Chief of Police ran the druggies and thugs out of Meigs and they all showed up in Ochlocknee! Now add drug deals being made on Main Street in full view of law-abiding citizens, threats being made against honest people, Gang activity going on all over town and our Mayor and City Council Members have got to realize it's time to make our community safe again, and it will take a police force to make that happen. 911 was called 9 times before they would respond to the shooting. The EMT's and Paramedics sat at the beginning of April Street waiting on the Deputy to arrive to secure the scene before they could attend to the injured. They had to wait over 25 minutes on that deputy. Who's to say if a local police could have arrived on the scene in mere minutes and could then let the EMT's in to do their job, who knows but maybe this young man could have been saved instead of letting him bleed out on the street. The other victim had family take him to the hospital instead of waiting and that might have been what saved his life. CITIZENS we must let our Mayor and Coucil Members know we will no longer accept security watchers armed with flashlights to keep our town safe. There is a solution if they will get their heads out of their butts and work this out! Also the next Council Meeting is on July 11th at 5:30. How about let's seeing if we can get at least half the town to show up to let them know we will be heard and we demand a solution so this issue is not just "tabled" again until a later date. It's too bad they moved their meetings up from 7:00pm to 5:30pm just to insure people would be at work still and fewer would be able to attend meetings! Coincidence???????

      The police force cannot turn around a situation like you describe. It's going to take the neighborhood residents, and particularly parents of these young people to step up. When things like this happen, no one in the neighborhood is willing to tell the police anything. They "saw nothing and heard nothing". OK then, it's YOUR neighborhood.

        According to public records of this incident...Dispatch time 1:06 a.m., Deputy arrival time 1:12 a.m. So where are you getting this 25 min response time. 5 Deputies to cover 650 square mile of county. Id say 6 minutes is not too bad!
