Two other victims were flown from Liberty Regional Hospital to Memorial Health University Medical Center.

Joshua Armstrong is in stable condition with several gunshot wounds to his groin, torso and other areas, according to Lt. Howard.

Police have not yet released the identity of the other victim flown to Memorial Health.

Hinesville Police, emergency services and first responders from Hinesville Fire Department all responded to the scene of the shooting this morning.

The incident is under investigation, but police believe this was not a random incident.

“It does appear that this is a result of an ongoing feud between a couple individuals that kind of escalated last night,” says Lt. Howard.

He believes the altercation was between individuals of the family residing at the Pineland Avenue residence and other individuals who followed them from a separate location.

Police stopped a vehicle in connection with the shooting at the intersection of Glenn Bryant and South Main Street.

Five people inside the vehicle are being as described as persons of interest in the shooting, but no arrests have been made.
